Close my eyes

February 21, 2008
By Thomas West, Fryeburg, ME

I close my eyes
And I see yours
Staring softly into mine

I see the smile
On your face
And softly I smile back

I close my eyes
And I hear your laugh
Ringing softly in my ears

I hear your voice
Telling tales
And softly I talk back

I close my eyes
And feel your arms
Closing softly around me

I feel your hand
Gripping mine
And softly I grip back

I close my eyes

I see your eyes
I see your smile
I hear your laugh
I hear your voice
I feel your arms
I feel your hand

Oh, if only I could live
Behind closed eyes

I love it. I heard of your writings and never had the opportunity to see them.
