reborn

I have been reborn for my life had been
Broken , shattered, and torn.
No future could I see
Till the day you came into me.

You opened my eyes to everything around
Including the people “ I had put down”.
You opened my heart to other peoples feelings
And left my mind completely reeling.

How could I have been so cold , so ruthless
To others needs, and on their sorrows I did feed.
I thought by climbing the ladder of success
I had to put down all the rest.

Then in a dream I saw myself being lowered
Down into the ground , and not one friend
Or family member to be found.
There was not one tear shed for me
Because of the way I used to be.

I woke up in a cold sweat, my hands 
were trembling ,My eyes were wet.
I had cried in that dream
For my life I had seen.

I fell to my knees and started to cry
When I felt you by my side.
I asked you : “if when I ask a question
And it was your will
If in my body I’d feel a chill.”

You gave me the answers to change my life around
And in you - a new life I had found.
