I Close My Eyes

e-caroline.com | I Close My Eyes


You and I were together,

The sun shone brighter,

The days lasted longer,

My smile was wider,

I was happier.

I close my eyes,

And I hear our laughter.


I walk alone,

A part of me is gone,

The rock I leaned on,

You're now home,

Yet here I am, still trudging on.

I close my eyes,

And I push on.

I set my sights high,

Above the clouds in the sky,

Where angels fly,

Where you now reside.

I close my eyes,

And set my sights high.

So that tomorrow...

We'll say hello, instead of goodbye,

When I, too, fade away like a sigh.
