Author Daryl P. Hall: When I Close My Eyes


When I close my eyes
I drift away,
I hear the waves breaking onto soft sand
Where I could walk with you.
I hear the birds singing sweetly,
As they begin their day,
Midst palm trees
A private concert just for you,
I can hear you breathe
The most natural thing in the world,
The sweetest song I’ve heard –
It is music to my ears.
When I close my eyes
I can feel the breeze brushing my skin,
Caressing it so gently so softly,
As I know you would.
When I close my eyes
I am transported,
I am there with you
Sipping morning coffee.
No words have to be exchanged,
Your company enough
For my breathless soul.
