Wide Awake

March 1, 2008
By Christopher Tocha, Buffalo, NY

When I close my eyes, I see…
I see the sun and the stars
Objects so warm, so bright
Yet too far to ever touch

When I close my eyes, I see…
I see the rain and the snow
Angels fallen to cleanse the Earth
Yet too many to ever hold

When I close my eyes, I see…
I see people holding hands
A peaceful embrace to fill the heart
Yet something too few ever truly feel

When I close my eyes
I see.
The world is perfect in a dream
Yet dreams are so rarely followed
