My Eyes Are Closed


United States

I close my eyes  before I sleep

Hoping that my heart will keep,

Wishing that it all won't end

Praying that my soul defends,

Wanting more but showing less

Pleeding for one last breath,

Knowing that I am worth more

Learning what my life is for,

Illumination from the strain

Opening my eyes to start again.
