Close my eyes

I was a wayward child
with the weight of the world
that I held deep inside.
Life was a winding road
and I learned many things
little ones shouldn't know

But I closed my eyes
steadied my feet on the ground
raised my head to the sky
and though times rolled by
still I feel like a child as I look at the moon
maybe I grew up a little too soon

Funny how one can learn
to grow numb to the madness
and block it away

I left the words unsaid
let it all dissipate
and I try to forget

Nearing the edge
Obvious I almost
Fell right over
A part of me
Will never be quite able
To feel stable
That woman-child falling inside
Was on the verge of fading
Thankfully I
Woke up in time

Guardian angel I
sail away on an ocean
with you by my side.
Orange clouds roll by
they burn into your image
and your still alive
