"Escaping Existence"
All alone I am humbled by death
The mere thought of escaping existence brings peace to my mind
Gasp for air as the blood fills my lungs
I have gone, but my soul breathes again

I Close my eyes and drift away
An entire universe in such a small space
Somewhere, I know I must find peace
Somewhere, I know I must find me

My heart fell right through the floor
Nothing feels close to the same anymore
Is this a dream? Will I ever wake up
Your name engraved on my heart

Wake me up from this

Wake me up, from this nightmare
Let me hear your voice, let me see your face again
Every night I look to the sky
I wonder if you hear me
Every night I cry out, to the sky
Hoping you will respond

Though there's loss
We can be assured
Time heals all
That's the natural order
I know I'll see you when my days are done
I know you'll be smiling at the end

I know you're gone, but I still feel you in my heart
The world has torn us apart, but through divine order..
We are connected

Choices made are out of our hands
Left with nothing but to wash the guilt
Hand in hand with acceptance
