“Your eyes, they tell me all your secrets.”
Your eyes, they tell me all your secrets. I see the happiness. Those rare moments when you’re unguarded, free. I see the hesitation. Your heart telling you to dive, but your mind cautioning you to wait. And I see the fear. That moment you realized it was too late. For better or worse, you’d fallen. But, darling, I don’t mind. Because I will protect your heart until my last breath.

Until my last breath,
I’ll keep you safe.
