WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES
There once was a time. I was so happy and free…..
You were my friend, by your side I would be.
Something went wrong, I just don't know when.
Now I'm all alone, in this room called a pen.
I know it's not home, it's a place that I fear.
When the lights go out, I sleep with a tear.
WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES, I dream of the sun. I
feel the breeze, in the field that I run.
As we walked to the pond….I was at your side.
You were my friend, I loved you with pride.
When we sat on the couch, I'd touch your hand.
You rubbed my chin…it was as soft as sand.
I was so happy, just to be next to you.
Now my life is confused, what can I do ?
There's so much I can give….so much I can say,
No one left to love me, nowhere to play.
Now I open my eyes and see such pain.
I cry for you, but my try is in vain.
As I glance to the left, and glance to the right,
There are so many like me, who share this plight.
As each day goes by, it gets harder to live.
I may be weak, but there's still love I can give.
As the day drags on and the lights grow dim,
I lay on the floor, for my future is grim.
WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES….it could be my last.
Please save me now, and bring back my past.
