She Can See It in My Eyes

She Can See It in My Eyes
By Don Ray Williams

Here I sit with my knee supporting Koki’s chin,
We’re consoling each other because your gone again.

Koki knows there is something wrong, she can see it in my eyes.

There is such a void in my life, when you are away from me.
It seems my mind keeps your image running through it constantly.

Koki knows there is something wrong, she can see it in my eyes.

How I miss hearing your voice whispering my name,
When you’re not here, nothing is the same.

Koki knows there is something wrong, she can see it in my eyes.

I am missing you in the morning hours. I am missing you late at night.
I am missing the way you look at me, when you hold me tight.

Koki knows there is something wrong, she can see it in my eyes.

I am counting the hours until your return. I must remember to tell you so.
Please stay a while this time and comfort us. We hate it when you go.

By now it should be no big surprise,
That Koki knows there is something wrong.
She can see it in my eyes.

  1. That is truly beautiful, Don Ray. You and Lilliam are so fortunate to have found such a love that you share.

  2. It used to be the other way around for me. I had to leave to go to work. I would leave for four or five months at a time when I went to sea. At least you have Koki. I no longer leave for work and I have a cat named Lilly who looks me in the eyes and says everything is okay. Kind of strange how things happen. I love my wife too.
