I watch through the window

I watch your whole life

Each day that passes

And turns into night

I watch as you read

Or talk on the phone

I watch as you eat

At home all alone

I see when you laugh

Although not that often

I see when you cry

Mourning a life long forgotten

I know when you sleep

Because then you’re at peace

The worlds crazy mess

Disappears for a few hours at least

I remember the flowers

The ones on your windowsill

I saw them when they were fresh

But even dried out they are pretty still

And I love your curtains

The ones you try to shut

No matter how hard you try

You can’t shut life out

The sun still shines through

And I watch as you smile

All is right with the world

Even if it only lasts for a while.
