About the Poem

Almost each day is shared with a friend. Many of us take friendship for granted, but there are days when we see the importance of a friend. Those are the days we close our eyes and thank the Lord for what he gives.

When I Close My Eyes

I know when I close my eyes,
They spread their wings to fly.
I can see their halos glow,
when I close my eyes.

They drift amongst the clouds,
always looking down.
Watching over me when days go by.
I know they do this when I close my eyes.

I bet they talk about my love and hates
and they can determine my own fate
And I bet they talk to God each night
To make sure what I do at night.

But God didn't put wings on friends,
though I do not know why.
Because I know that they are angels
Every time I close my eyes.
