To Reach You in the StarsClose my eyes and listen,To Reach You in the Stars by odhinns-scribe
Close my eyes and listen.
Can't you see what it is I hear?
See them open,
See the pain, the sorrow, the hope,
See them glittering in my eyes.
Are these feelings for you?
(Who is it that I'm speaking to?)
Truth be told, there is none at all.
Never knowing, never seeing,
Never clearly feeling what I hope is close at hand.
With these eyes so closed shut,
I hear the wind whisper in my ears...
A whisper of a dream,
Of a thing that my soul can grasp,
Yet here my hands reach out,
The dream shatters like broken, painted glass.
Eyes are open to reality,
Where nothing ever truly was there.
Every night I send out a wish,
I send it to the moon, in hopes you will see it too.
(Whose eyes can see this deep wish that I send to thee?)
So now I sleep,
Laying down, a weight pushing in my chest.
Holding in the tears, I feel you there,
Arms draped around my waist,
Now I'm dreaming, for I reach once more,
Broken hopes and dreams is what my fingers touch.
Only the air,
