About the Author

Plainville, CT, United States
Having achieved my goal of becoming a published author, I contribute it to the fact that I have been writing since the age of 9. My boys were the inspiration for my children's stories and my life is the inspiration for my autobiography. I have a tendency to write about whatever I feel, relevant, interesting or not. I welcome any comments you may have, positive or constructive. Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog, My life.

I Close My Eyes.......

As the days go by I think of you
Wondering what you are doing.
Are you thinking of me?
Do you feel what I feel?

There are so many things I want to say
Words that will go unspoken
Fearing that they will fall on deaf ears
Be spoken all for naught

The distance between us feels as though
It spans a life time. 
Talking to you but never hearing your voice
Seeing you but never able to look into your eyes

I am a prisoner in my own life
Bound by chains fashioned of torment
Strengthened by years of misery
Longing to but never able to escape

In my darkness I close my eyes and then
I feel the warmth of your touch on my face
I feel your arms around me, strong, 
Never letting go, keeping me safe

My body is pressed close to yours
I can feel your heartbeat, feel your 
Soft touch, your warm breath
Hear your whispers in my ear

I know that when I open my eyes
You will no longer be with me
Once again you will be only in my
Heart, my thoughts and in my dreams
