Close Your Eyes
by Judy Burnette
|I can't be with you today
but if you close your eyes and think;
I'll be beside you in the kitchen
wearing your shirt - standing by the sink.
I'll be with you in the bedroom
waiting quietly on your bed;
Just close your eyes and think of me,
relive those memories in your head.
I'll stand by you in the bathroom,
an unlikely place to meet;
I'll smile at you so playfully
as I let you brush my teeth.
I'll be your light in the darkness,
shining steady through and through;
You only have to watch it glow
to know I think of you.
I'll be the music that you listen to,
I'll be there in every song:
I'll laugh with you and sing with you,
and comfort you when your day's gone wrong.
I'll be the wind that ruffles your hair,
I'll be that warm embrace;
I'll be the hand on your shoulder,
I'll be the tender touch on your face.
I'll be the clock gently ticking,
reminding you of the times;
We've shut the rest of the world outside
we're in our own world - yours and mine.
I'll be the moon as it dances
on the water cold and still;
For I have loved you always
and I know I always will.
Though you may not see me physically
as you live your life today;
Just close your eyes and think of me
I will not be far away.
|Come take my hand and walk with me
Share my likes, my wishes, my life
Don't judge me, just love me
Accept me for who I am
For if I try to change for you
Then you'll no longer know me
As I am no longer happy with whom I am
Always remember where we are going
So you don't forget where we have been
If we hold on to each other's hearts
And taste each other's rainbows
The sun will shine
The flowers will bloom
The world will dance around us
And we will remain forever us
|Sometimes, when it's late at night,
and I'm up roaming around.
I wonder what the future holds,
in this new existence, I have found?
I reached the stars, then had them fade,
To became a memory, that's left behind.
My name, no longer lingering,
in the corners of his mind.
Will anyone be able,
to tear down the wall, he hides behind?
Will they see what I see,
a man so gentle and so kind?
His world is closed to everyone,
he just won't let me in.
He shuts out everyone he knows,
Even me, a so called friend.
I don't know about the future,
I don't even know about today.
I only hope someone can,
earn his trust someday.
I wish that I could be the one,
to give life, back to him.
To give his life a meaning,
and to help him trust again.
I want to see him free,
to really love, and to live.
I know that I can't do it.
I've given all I have to give.
Now and forever, I'll be his friend.
There's nothing more, that I can do.
From the depths, of my being,
I will be someone, loyal and true.
It's not enough, for him I know,
It will take someone, better then me.
My prayer is that he'll find her,
and dear God, please set me free.
Erase him from my dreams at night,
remove him from my mind.
Help him to find, what he really wants,
and help me to forget about all of mine!
An Engineer's Valentine
by Matthew Dalton
|I was alone and all was dark
Beneath me and above
My life was full of volts and amps
But not the spark of love
But now that you are here with me
My heart is overjoyed
You've turned the square of my heart
Into a sinusoid
You load things from my memory
Onto my system bus
My life was once assembly code
It's now like C++
I love the way you solder things
My circuits you can fix
The voltage 'cross your diode is
much more than just point six
With your op-amps and resistors
You have built my integrator
I cannot survive without you
You're my function generator
You've changed my world, increased my gain
And made my math discreet
So now I'll end my poem here
