I can close my eyes and find
A world that can't be seen.
Only felt and smelt and known
If you know what I mean.
I knew this place as a young girl,
Frequented it then
But as the years go strolling by
I long to be there again.
I can still smell the crisp air,
Feel the breeze across my face.
A smile parts across my lips
As I recall this favored place.
How I long to return again
For longer than a moment.
Everything frozen in time, immortiziled
I find it right how I left it.
When I return, you're still alive
And im no longer sick
Like nothing evil even exists,
Plenty of flowers to pick
And even as you pick them
New ones grow in their place
Springing up in hopes to see
That smile grace your face
But life is rough, the world is cruel.
Reality lands hard,
Your face is buried 6 feet deep
Ive tried to mend my heart
But its seen a lot of wear these days
Hurt im not allowed to show
Shards of glass pierce deeply
Pain one cannot grasp enough to know.
For there's far more to this heart
Than im allowed to discuss
Im not surprised by questioning eyes
It's not worth all the fuss.
I'll just stand here in the breeze
A tease of spring lingering
I'll close my eyes and there I'll find
Hope of the promise from my King.
That proves all I need.
