When I look Upon Your Face~

Elderly Woman from Morocco

When I look upon your face, I can see the lines
of every painful word I have ever spoken
I can see wind drift scares of every promise
broken

When I look upon your face I can see deep within
the shadows of your eyes the dreams you still hold true,
the now few aspirations your still cling to

When I look upon your face I feel calmness with each smile
never a vengeful whisper from your lips
nor notes from songs of life’s bitter eclipse

When I look upon your face I see myself
in your reflection
knowing how much you cared, devoted your all in
endless dedication.

When I look upon your face I cry the tears you no
longer can
Though my heart bleeds the blood flows from your
hand

When I look upon your face I see the garden of
paradise
I confess all sins for in your face I am blessed
by your life’s sacrifice.
