Behind Those Eyes

Who is behind those eyes?
I want to know...I want to know you.
I see a smile, an uncertain sort of smile
were you really sad all the while?
I don’t think you knew if you were sad
I don’t think you knew much of anything
you just were...
You were not the pretty girl
or the one everyone wanted to be friends with
you were different...strange
I think you probably loved to laugh
I think you were very generous
and sensitive
I bet you would have loved to have curled up in arms of love
I bet you would have loved wonderful stories
I think you were swimming through dark waters
you just couldn’t see
but you swam
and swam
It probably felt safe, comforting to be someone else
