CLOSE MY EYES
I close my eyes as dreams drift me off into the night;
This page is my pillow, my mind is asleep whilst my pen still continues to write.
My body surrenders to the darkness, as my brain works in partnership with my hand;
The ink floods over this blank page, revelling just what my destiny has planned.
I fall deeper and deeper into my sleeping silence;
These words aren’t just verses put together, they were written to give you hope and guidance.
You have written you’re destiny, but I do worry that one day your imagination will just run dry;
These words have consumed you’re heart so much, that ink now rolls down you’re cheeks when you cry.
The silent pen moves across this letter, as dreams flow through you’re sleeping brain;
My angels sit up on their clouds reading you’re verses, as their tears fall from the heavens turning into rain.
You’re destiny has brought you this far, you have nearly made it, but you have to keep on fighting;
You know what you have to do to succeed, and that’s to just keep on writing.
It was angels who altered you’re destiny, giving you the chance to write your very own resurrection;
You will never stand alone in life, if you look closely in the mirror you will see angels, standing next to your reflection.
Keep the faith, and one day soon I promise you will get you’re break;
The sun is starting to rise now, it will soon be your time to wake.
It’s my time to leave you now, as the sun slowly creeps its way into the early morning skies;
Just try and trust what I have written for you my child, as it’s now time for you to open up your eyes.
