Every Time I Close My Eyes

Every time
I close my eyes
I see it
A bright light shining
So inviting

Every time
I close my eyes
I feel it
Ethereal hands
On my shoulders
Guiding
Me closer to the light

Every time
I close my eyes
I hear it
The constant chiding
And deriding
Telling me it’s time
To quit fighting
No point in surviving

But then I think of you
And it opens up my eyes
And I hear you
Your voice so calming
Reminding
Me of why I strive
To keep fighting

I feel you
Your hands
In mine
Guiding
Me away from the light

I hear you
My one reason
For surviving
