If you could see me today,

who would you see?

If you were next to me,

what could I possibly say?


If it were a possibility,

could I make you stay?

I'd dream of you, however rare.

I eventually considered them;

my cruelest nightmares.


When your breathing ceased,

so did my heart beat.

Left me alone;

walking this journey,

forever alone.


One day I will realize;

those weren't nightmares

but a moment to hold on to you;

the person I truly miss.


And those tight breaths,

I just couldn't grasp.

Morphed into this power

now strength I'll always have.
