Sit down and look at me.
Look into my eyes, so you'll know
This is not easy for me
Looking into someone's eyes
Letting someone in
Always ashamed
Always looking down

But I learned
Learned that that's what people do
Confident people
Successful peole
They look each other in the eye
And so I did
But not into
Not into the soul
A sort of "I'm as good as you are." look
A certain squaring off
A cock fight sort of, standing tall
Looking strong
The way I've lived my life
The false one
The brittle candy shell
The melting chocolate underneath
"Look them in the eye." She said.
And a firm hand-shake
Always a firm hand-shake

Don't look me in the eye
Look inside instead
You are good
Why you can't see that, I don't know
You hurt as much for others as for yourself
You cry for friends who can't cry for themselves
And pull them up, even when you can barely make your own way

You're strong
Look what you've overcome
Look what you've survived through pure determination
You should hate the world
And yet you only ask it for forgiveness for not being better than you are

I watch you
And I marvel at your goodness
And it keeps me going sometimes
If you're as strong as you are after all you've been through,
Who am I to sit beside the road and wail?
Who am I to curl up and cry myself to sleep
And yet, when I do
It is you who comes to pat my head and make me feel safe

And now I watch you as you find your child
Pick him up and cherish him
Help him heal
Try to give him love he never had
Self-esteem he's never known
A tender touch to heal the pain

You see him for who he really is
Strong
Loving
Injured
Needing so much nurture after so much damage done

Hold yourself as you hold him
Tell yourself the things you say to him
You're loved
You're good
You're strong
These things were done to you
They weren't your fault
In all your world, there is no shame

Heal together
Boy and man
Separated, but the same
United now in knowledge and in love
One day to be healed for all time

Look into my eyes, and know the way I feel
It comes from deep within my heart
You are good
You are strong
And you are loved

My soul doth magnify the Lord
and his Name Is Bobby.

His marvellous works that he hath done
and his Name Is Bobby.

He teaches me to laugh and cry
and his Name Is Bobby.
Wow,what a guy!

Thanks, Bobby.
