Eyes Open

by Cymbre Dolphay

The world stops spinning
as I open my eyes

my nightmare is ended,
the ground is content
as it looks to the sky
where tears of blood
are shed no more,
and that elusive hope
is cradled safe within
the circle of my arms

your eyes are closed as you sleep
(but I still see them
smiling with gentle faith)
and it is your fingertips
brushing tenderly against my cheek
that remind me...
my scars are all healed,
my pain is a distant memory,
my torment is gone.

I can open my eyes again
without fear of any sadness
because I know that you are near


Author's Note: Dedicated to Andy and Mike. To Andy for writing Eyes Closed. And to Mike for loving me so much.
