Awhile In Time...

I close my eyes for a while, just a while
And I see a familiar darkness I recognize
Astonishingly, comfort was found somehow
A tranquility I’m always in welcome to reprise

Images in random united within
Moving in with memories, moving out with tears
Whether the real world, or a dream to have been
Lived were all remembered and forgotten in years

Decidedly, a tune replayed in mind
A tune… for myself and a someone who knows
And as before, time has left me behind
Is there once a me, you remember to have enfold

Then, came future to foresee
Imaginable moments, unpromising and bleak
Either achievable or unavoidable to be
The unforeseen isn’t in justification to seek

And I open my eyes after that while
The other side of darkness I’m unable to recognize
Unfortunately, of comfort I’m aware of somehow
Yet, this instance I’m in regret to reprise
