Shades like the dark shades under your eyes
are shades like the shades
created by a tree under a sunny day.

They are where I find solace.

I look at your face and the shades are there.
I’m ill. Almost succumbing to the light.
But I look at your face and the shades are there.

They are where I take rest.
They are where I find strength.

Mom,

Shades like the dark shades under your eyes
are what are keeping me alive
Shades like the dark shades under your eyes
are where I rather stay.

It is with you where I find solace.
