 Welcome to My Poetry Site

Today I closed my eyes, opened my heart
never realized, after all these years my friend
never saw past his wants.

I felt he was very much alone in this life
he made so bold, words he wanted to hear
love he needed but never held dear, never
happy just being himself.

He stared across the room, he cannot see
the friend who stands before him, a friend
who would of done anything to make him smile
only a little.

It is so sad when they see, but don't see,
that little something waiting to be noticed under
a handful of dust and ash, or maybe a little
needle rusting with age by a moss covered rock.

Eyes are opened wide but cannot see
what the heart can.

Some day our eyes will open, we will
see what we should of seen, if we just open
up our unconsidering heart.
