Close My Eyes

Close My Eyes
by Craig Alan

I wish I could close my eyes
And when I open them,
Everything would be normal.

Normal, at least for me is
Better than where I am or ever was.

I wish I could close my eyes
And when I open them,
I could be the person I’ve always wanted to be

A person that is better than what
I am now, at least a step above.

I wish I could close my eyes
And when I open them,
I could be on a tropical island.

An island away from all, isolated
And free to live & free to dream.

I wish I could close my eyes
And when I open them,
Everyone I know could be the best they could be.

The best we can be, a perfect world,
If there is such a thing.

Maybe the only way that I can have all the things I want together.
Be all the things that I want to be
And to see all the things that I want to see
Is to close my eyes forever.
