Closed Eyelids

You closed those eyelids,
To keep the tears locked in,
When you wished me well.

When you wished me well,
You could not raise your hand,
You could not lift your head.

You could not lift your head,
And open your eyes wide,
To watch me leave.

To watch me leave,
Would have hurt your heart,
Instead you closed those eyelids.
