I Close My Eyes - Poem by Max D. Hornbogen
I close my eyes and try to think of nothing...sometimes I feel like I could fly away.
Can I fly away from my problems, can I just leave this town.
I want my life to mean something, not just someone to tell me what to do all the time.
So where are my wings? Why can't I fly...so I close my eyes and think of flying away.
But still I am standing on my feet, so where are my wings?
Why can't I fly anymore...I am still standing here.
I want to see everything in life, even want to see the sun going up and down everyday.
The feeling of being alive is a warm feeling inside...still want to fly away and see everything from above.
So I just want to fly away from my problems, can't you see I want those wings to fly away.
I want to go somewhere I can call my own, a place where I am free.
But I know we all have to stand on our feet and face the facts of life that we go through.
Still I remember the moments I had with you, your smile was everything to me.
Your picture is on my wall and I think about you everyday.
I just wish, I could fly with you through the clouds above.
But for now I will stand on my feet and I will always be thinking of you.
