I search through this darkness,
for just a flicker of light;
Something to help guide me,
through this unknown, without fright...
For just one millionth of a second,
of her arms around me;
A sacrifice well worth all this pain that I leave...
A comfort so familiar, as I revel in this peace;
A feeling of pure happy,
As she is here with me...
She may be disappointed,
in the action's that I have taken;
Yet she show's only a smile,
as she reaches towards me...
Although darkness surrounds me,
Above and Below;
I can feel her arm's embrace me,
with a strong grandmother hello..
I can feel her beating heart,
as it presses into mine;
This is where I belong,
I've known it all the time.
I feel that if my face is smiling,
as if it were to never leave;
As the love coming from her eyes,
leaves me content and at peace;
As so gently, without fear;
I Fade into sleep...
