The moment can’t be stopped when eyes must meet
To choose to smile or lower lids afraid
A look once seen can strengthen or retreat
Son ojos cobardes when eyes’ escape is made.

The feigned affection given without care
Will teach a fool the pain of empty fact
That one is wicked when they give false stare.
Son ojos cobardes when eyes are not exact.

To grant a gaze communicates your thoughts
Reveals emotions felt from deep within.
Its truth and love; or bitter pain that rots.
Son ojos cobardes when eyes look down in sin.

The frightened truth is powerful tonight
For now I know your eyes contain no light.
