Silence deafens the room
As loud as the waters of the falls
Alone she sleeps
Blood seeping life into her listless body
When does the pain stop?
One hour of patience drowning in an eternity of uncertainly
Who do you think you are?
Who gives you the right to strip life from the living?
With only half a life gone, why is the future black?
Turning back the clocks of time in our minds in hopes of a miracle
Now sitting in the cold frozen in this moment
Shivering at the realization of the impending expiration
Now we collect tear drops only to swim away never to look back.
Soaked in a bittersweet pool of bravery that is slowly slipping away
Beyond the grave you will be loved as you were loved on this Earth
With every breath, your warmth enters our body and hugs our heart with all the strength in the world
One more hour, one step closer, one more soul slips away….
