I'm Empty

It always comes
I lay down
Everything is quiet
And dark
I breathe in 
I breathe out
I wait
And it comes
Praises, requests, love, thanksgiving
It didn't come

Allow me another moment,
A moment in your nostalgia,
The moment that stretches to eternity.

A mile by your side,
The mile that transcends the dead-end.

A Soul Awakened

Back then 
No den

Right here
sound clear

Back then
No pen

Right here
Great share

Back then
Not ten

Right here
I rear

Dear zone
I own

This soul
Make roll

Rise soul
My soul.
