Willfully blind

I close my eyes and I live through it
The memory so fresh
Of something that might never be
The memory so peaceful
Of something beyond expression
The memory so special
Of a power beyond comprehension

You never know what you had
Until you have it no more
You never know what you need
Until you want it no more

Is reality worth this sacrifice?
I finally accept it definitely isn't
I'll burn in the altar
Just to relive
Or remain with my eyes closed
Holding the thought tight
I'd rather be willfully blind
Than give up the memory
