The phone buzzes,
A crying voice makes my heart heavy,
Memories flash before my eyes,
Times I saw you smile,
Times I saw you cry,
Someone who always fought for me,
Yet somehow today you gave up,
Was it a mask I saw everyday?
Hiding the war underneath,
Did my voice die away in the battle cry?
If I screamed louder,
Would things have been different?
The despair and guilt eat me away,
Like a vulture gnawing my heart,
The storm brews around me,
Rain and thunder inside me,
Your voice brings me back,
Finally gone crazy, I think,
But I see a white figure,
Beautiful, elegant and ephemeral,
It is you, from the heavens above,
Your kiss, a breath of life,
I feel my tensions fade away,
“You are free now from your burden”
I hear as I wake up with eyes wide open,
Now with a fire in my soul,
I walk to face the new day.
