Driving home song lyrics yet again caught my attention,
“He has his father’s eyes.”
Kiddo has his daddy’s eyes… no doubt. I loved John’s eyes and would often find myself just staring into them…. captivated. They were a unique color.
If John caught me he’d tell me to stop.
Kiddo’s eyes are the same shade. Sometimes it’s comforting. Sometimes it’s sad.
I like the song, but for some reason, I was in a lyric listening mood…
“Help is on the way.”
And then the desperation that “help” was not coming.
I thought of leaky basements, holes in roofs, buildings in disrepair, and broken promises.
I wondered what the song was really about… probably a natural disaster… my guess would be Katrina.
After arriving home and settling in, I thought to look it up on youtube. The video was beyond powerful and brought tears to my eyes. It also brought to light that no matter how promises were broken, at least, I’m not standing on a roof with water up to the eaves.
