Your Eyes

Just as the winds blow passed the lights
I can see it in your eyes your never going to leave
but your never here, Its like the dust and earth
they have their hands wrapped around you.

I take all I can get and give more than I should,
but you keep wanting more, more is always
understood…To you I’ll always be yours
like the seeds you’ll sow and then unearth.

It comes around again the winds blowing by
the red dirt filling our lives the cattle struggling
to survive.
You have given it all and everything..Please
just let it go I scream but nothing is coming

You’ll never give it up till it takes every ounce of you
and our lives, Just like your father and so many other
men who have tried to tame these lands before him

I watch you every day and think about the other men
women and children who have stayed wondering why o why!
how did they survive.

Beacuse there is something in your eyes
like the winds that blow by the lights
and this land that you’ll die by.
