Now I lay me down to sleep, my woman close and tight in my arms I need. There in
the soul I am lost but no without. My comfort void but needs to which fills the
night. My dreams endless but in hopes I live on. It is my last breath I feel
before my eyes close in darkness. My heart beats once in time of passions
passing. The love torn as if run through a briar patch it leaves blood stain
trail. But in strength it can not be beaten as it stands strong of life's
experience. It is of my heart I cry the tears I do but none the less I am still
a man with flaws of flesh you see. But it is my heart my soul lives and die. But
of life I fight and struggle to stay alive. For what reason, I have no reason
why. All I know, is I am only human cause that's the way my spirit was sent in
life. Even that of an animal his path is choosen before entering this world.
That no matter what the cause, life is not easy you see. That even the animal
can die of life's pain and torture and lost of no one there to hold him tight.
But even that of our souls we both fight the same. We all just want be love and
care for by someone deep. But we just want to live to love in life before we see
them skies of blue. But know I love you even to my death I die and bury with me.
That this day I fight just to be a part of your life. But just to be I dream
this night of sleep.
