‘Lighthouse’. It’s a song by ‘Patric Watson’.
What about this specific song? Well…this song always manages to awaken deep feelings buried within! Every single time I listen to it..I never know what feelings are going to surface!
Sometimes, it’s missing loved ones I haven’t seen for a while…I picture them listening to it too…The song brings back their facial features to mind! Their smile, their quiet ‘huggy’ gaze. The eyes, are half open, and are smiling…I loved to /and still do/ call them my favourite ‘smiling eyes’! They tell you a lot without any words actually spoken! They tell you this ‘You are wonderful! BUT..look at my friend leaning her head on mine! Isn’t she the most wonderful being you’ve ever seen/met?! I’m so lucky!’. Those favourite eyes of mine aren’t loud! Rather they’re very quiet! They make ‘you’ feel quiet inside too…They share the space with the most generous smile! My eyes keep bouncing back and forth between that gaze and that smile! The smile isn’t loud either! Generous, but not loud! It’s also quiet in the most wonderful way imagined!
That generous quiet smile, those quiet ‘huggy’ eyes are my ‘lighthouse’! My son.
