Close Your Eyes (Let's Laugh Instead)
- perspective: his friends had an inkling that he was ill, but he didn't want to say that he would die from it... he left a letter for after his death explaining his reasons... my rendition of his words...
I haven't said to you, my friend,
That I’m on the last stretches.
And now my comfort is following
A similar path
'Cause I know you want to know.
But I saw the worry in
Your caring eyes
And fear like awful makeup was
Thick on your pained face.
I can’t forget when you
Saw my frail moment that time.
I know as time will go, you won't be able to miss
All of the signs that betray my paling complexion,
But what if I were to confirm your suspicions now?
Would it be possible for you to just look
Deeper than the surface, block out the obvious,
So that we can keep on laughing instead?
I've been pondering the question for a while
And still I don't see how helpful it'd be
To voice out the reality and rush forward
The powerless feelings.
I simply don’t want to waste
All possible good times that’re left.
I don’t mean to leave you alone to wonder
About questions better left unanswered now,
but I’m counting on you to understand
I'd rather we just toked and laughed instead
Like we've always done together.
This is how it should stay.
Deeply hoping forgiveness
Will come into your heart easily
Even though I’ve made the decision for you.
It's my belief that enjoying ourselves
Is a lot more important to do than
Worrying about when time will be over.
Not ever meant to hurt you
But all I can think at this time is
Close your eyes,
We’re together right now,
So, let’s just laugh instead.
