I must say Good-bye, Good-BYE

I have drank the Tears of Death, My fears swallowed in One Breath
I felt the frozen flames of Hell, I hear the tolling of Death's Iron Bell
I smell of ashes, dying embers, melting into the Darkness of Death
I see the shadow of Evil, Covering me every night, with the frozen flames:
                                  Of My Living Hell

thank you for saving me.

please don't take me,
i'm not ready to go.
as the light swirls around me, 
i feel my heart start to slow.
it feels like waves crashing on me,
sweeping me up, letting me flow.
the noise around me starts to fade.
the silence cutting like a blade.
i realize i'm no longer awake.
i hear someone yelling "come back"
my body starts to quake.
i start to drift again, the peace over coming me.
the voice cracks though the silence.
i wake in a mountain of debris.
 peace fades and pain takes over.
i'm afraid to open my eyes. afraid of what i'll see.
that voice chanting "thank God" brings me back.
thank you jesus, for that voice.
i'm not sure who's it was, but they saved my life.

Gentle Death

I’m unwanted and un-kept
My eyes alone show I’ve wept
A second chance should fate allow
A dreamless sleep is best for now
Taken in your hands of care
My need no longer to beware
Silent tears you shed for me
No pain I feel…at last I’m free.

Through you

Maybe i'm a dreamer
But i see things clearer
When i see things
Through you

When i let myself notice
What is around me
What is happening
I get in touch with reality

I can feel emotions 
I'd never felt before
I see life so differently
Since your angel knocked on my door

So here i am i grew up quick 
Life is made of memories
And built up with dreams
Everyone has a forever growing story
