    i looked past u'r eyes,
    and saw into u'r heart
    please don't turn away now....
    the pain there- let it go;
    throw it away, i'm here now
    i got u'r back
    i aint going nowhere
    so rest u'r spirit for a while
    and let u'r guard down
    i looked past u'r eyes,
    and saw into u'r heart
    tears filled my eyes
    and spilled over creating waterfalls
    cascading down my cheeks...
    I LOVE YOU
    I'M HERE FOR YOU
    CAN'T YOU SEE?
    my whispers raise in volume
    i'm standing now, still facing u
    FORGET WHATEVER "THEY" TOLD YOU
    YOU CAN RISE ABOVE THEIR VIEWS
    WE CAN BE THE STRENGTH THAT EACH OTHER NEED....
    embracing now, i hold u tight
    please let the pain go
    tears started to flow...
    u pulled away
    no-- look me in my face,
    indeed, a man can be strong with tears
    acknowledge all that u are.
    who said men can't cry anyway?
    whose standard are u upholding?
    from day one,
    i looked past u'r eyes
    and saw into u'r heart
    i saw more than what lies on the surface
    i saw beauty, strength, intelligence
    determination, diligence, gentleness
    unspeakable promise, unstoppable goals
    man, what i saw was a sight to behold
    i looked past u'r eyes and saw into u'r heart....
    i'm just waiting for u to see it for u'rself.

    If he could only see half of what you do, he would see a king, hopefully he will. This is a lovely scribe.

    Thanks for your feedback, MissLady and Rich....
    I have not been on here consistently in a long time, i miss it. but i'm back now.

    this was actually inspired by a conversation i had with my love. i understand the issue of masculinity and males holding back tears and emotion.... but yall are not robots.

    Wow sister.... Seeing into the Heart of someone only means the heart was open to see another.
    I pray he sees your heart as well
    BEAUTIFUL
