Leave your eyes here with me
So in times of need
I might cradle them with cupped hands
And drawing them near to an ear
I'll listen as the waves break
Recollecting memory

You see
They house a piece of me
Without which I feel incomplete
I have tried to retrieve it
But I think that this part of me can only exist there
In your eyes

So if you take your eyes away from me
I'd be a man apart
Someone unfamiliar
Hardly recognizable
It's the only place I feel I know myself
There in your eyes

If you don't leave them
I'll shatter
A part of me
Forever lost
And the cracks will always show
No matter how meticulously glued back together the pieces
