I Close My Eyes

I close my eyes
all alone dancing in the dark 
late at night I pretend I'm dancing with you
that gives me a moment of peace
that sets my spirit free
way before I go to sleep
But when the music stops 
I find my sadness all around me
I feel I can no longer breathe 
because you aren't with me 
I'm cold and all alone 
locked away in a darken place 
But I know this is only a temporary 
suspension of activity
that renounce upon my oath
and to forgive all those who deserve all blame
for this pain that I am in
at times it hard for me to understand 
their bitterness of hate 
but again it's not my place to cast stones
I do forgive but I will never forget
I can still see thier wratched eyes
like they see nothing but the abyss
trying to grasp hold of a glimps of life
they are always in my nightmares
they are awlays showing great fear 
when I stand near 
because my ways are cheerful in readiness
to live life in true forgivness 
and always ready to help another find their way
back to the true God
it is also hard on me to keep my doubts away
when I'm locked away into darken dreams
things are never what they seem
the process of this transformation
that is seemingly magical
where millions are willing to be led
but then you have the ones 
that are lacking of caring
the hold false and doubt in their hearts
they love to judge others 
and cast stones 
they are very hostile withe secret of lies 
they are evil an very mysterious 
thet make traps for the good to fall into
the only know how to deceive and mislead
where they are very quarrelsome
But, no matter what 
I try to always hang on to the light
and to pass the time I dance in the dark
closing my eyes and pretend I'm dancing with you.
