Saving sunlight

Location

 

If I lose myself, if I remove myself

From this damned situation

Forget everything that made me fight so hard

Become lightless in a world already so dark

 

If this is the end how long will it last

Until something new begins

And this too is the past?

From where I stand it's all the same

Just a disappointing grey

Heaven and hell seperate the day

 


No tears my love

Hush little baby

It feels like a dream 

but you're not sleeping

 

You cant put back together what was made of my dust

You can't shine silver out of my rust

You hold  me tighter just to feel me slip

Not knowing I am dying, choking  in your grip

 

I can't hold my breath- not a moment longer

I'm questioning death and letting you go

Telling myself you'll be better on your own 

Facing my fears of leaving you alone

I repeat it to myself- Write it on the stone

It will take time you see, and then you'll move on

forgetting about me, soon after I'm gone

 

No tears my love

Hush little baby

It feels like a dream 

but you're not sleeping

 

Pull me from the earth, the grave I've been digging

 

Tell me about worth, the need to keep  living

I am deserving of love, I am more than enough 

We are the weathering ship in a sea so rough

 

Now you hold me so gently, wiping away my tears

"Sweetheart, darling I've killed your fears."

I promise you now, you will be alright

The sun is rising, it is the end of the night.

 

 

No tears my love

Hush little baby

It feels like a dream 

but you're not sleeping
