Sometimes It’s Hard To Watch

My Eye


Sometimes it’s hard to watch

But I gotta keep my eyes open

In case you fall

I can pick you up

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

But I gotta keep my eyes open

Even when you seem to self-destruct

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

Your words come across the screen

Trying to find your own way

But I tell myself that you’re just letting off steam

But still, it’s hard to watch

Even though I know that you’re destined to be King

It’s still hard to watch

Sometimes my hands beg to cover my eyes

But right before they do

I get a wonderful surprise

I realize that no matter what

I want to see it all

So when you’re King

I can remind you how you rose & did not fall

Queen For A Day


Baby girl you deserve to be more than Queen for a day

You should be treated like royalty each and every day

There’s no need to accept loyalty on occasion

Or be treated like currency is your only persuasion

On a daily you should be honored and treated with respect

And not be hurt by the one who says your heart they’ll protect

You should be considered right after the Lord

And not kept dangling like a tag on a cord

You should be given flowers and candy more than one day of the year

And not treated like a court date stamped failure to appear

The man who deserves your heart will make the team

You’ll know him because he’ll walk like a King

He will love you with his whole heart and not take it lightly

He will make you feel secure by holding on to you tightly

He will try his best not to disappoint or break your heart

He’d rather disappoint himself or tear his own apart

He will consistently treat you like a Queen

And not talk down to you, cheat on you, or anything in between

Or every now and then do something nice to get you off of his back

Or to throw you off his trail so you won’t be on the attack

You can settle for less if that’s what you so choose

But know that it’s you who will ultimately lose

Why not be treated like more than a Queen for a day

By choosing a King who’ll honor and respect you everyday
