When I Close My Eyes

When I close my eyes, I slip into a beautiful world.  One where its always sunset.  The birds are flying into the heavens, the breeze lightly moves my hair, and the earth is a beautiful green.  There is music in the distance, and it makes you smile. 
When I close my eyes, we're walking side by side, holding hands.  I don't have to breathe because you've already taken that away and you look at me in that special way, and I get that feeling deep inside that makes me want to squirm.
When I close my eyes, I never want to open them.  Everything is too perfect in this hidden world behind my eyelids.  I did everything right the first time, and don't wish I could go back and fix it.
When I open my eyes, I slide right back into reality.  The sunset is gone and I start to breathe again. . .
