I Just Close My Eyes

I just close my eyes and she's there

Sometimes I trip and fall, but I don't care

With eyes closed I absorb the pain

When I open them, she's gone again

Random thoughts don't last

Not like they did in the past

She's a shining light

On a future so bright

Every time she enters my mind

I find

Peace, tranquility, a knowing

Continuously growing

Normality that seems surreal

Such ease I feel

Sensitive and sweet

Three inches, five feet

Each passing day takes me closer to that place

Solitude greeted by an open door

The simple joy of caressing her beautiful face

And be alone no more
