The Reflection of Shadows
A collection of moments
It's a Beautiful Day
It's a beautiful day, but I can't see it-
Eyes shut tight
That keep in secrets.
I see no colors,
See no sights-
All I sense is shifting light.
It's a beautiful song, but I can't hear it-
Mouths move silent
Though I'm near them.
Hear no laughter,
Hear no songs,
This silence, I hear all alone.
It's a beautiful day, but I can't praise it-
I can't explain it.
I can't jump in,
My words are caught and stuck within.
It's a beautiful day, I can't enjoy it-
No longer function.
I can't run circles,
Can't jump high,
I sit and watch the world pass by.
It's a beautiful life, I know, I feel it-
I sense its stillness.
Sense the laughter,
Sense the light,
I sense the things you shut out tight.
This beautiful life, get up and live it-
Don't sit idly,
The time is here,
Don't let these chances disappear.
