Close Your Eyes and Believe

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Close your eyes

and believe -

that this world,

is magic indeed.

There are places and spaces,

where you can see -

so many amazing things -

that will please.

Oh, sure,

this world isn’t perfect -

not by any measure,

but it has many delights to treasure.

Look about you and see -

that all of nature.

surrounding us,

is for free.

Gaze up at the sky

and close your eyes,

open them and be amazed,

at the clouds sailing by.

Close your eyes

and think of wondrous things,

remember that faith,

is what helps us get through life.

As we drift along,

in this world,

we must never lose,

sight of what is important.

Spin around,

imagine the beauty of rainbows

and white doves,

as they fly across the skies.

Colorful flowers blooming,

picture the beauty of the spring

that comes round

and reawakens nature.

You can be sure

that the Lord will guide you,

be there beside you,

if you just close your eyes and believe.
