When you close your eyes
There is a dream there waiting to be seen
Why must you close your eyes to remember?

I can't see when I sleep.
I close my eyes when I cry
Without it, I would never see--
or feel the water form at my corners

I close my eyes when I feel you.
Because I don't want to look anywhere else.

I close my eyes because they are sewn shut with time
I always find it too late to be seen

How will I know when you look at me?
