By Kristina Rehak
As the time wastes away so does my soul,
Withered like someone’s age,
My day comes to its end.
Wishing that I can face the next day,
Knowing that no matter what,
I am going to have to deal with it anyway.
My eyes shut without my consent,
Dwelling in my dreams,
I overlook the problems of the day.
My loss of breath expands to a loss of energy,
I lay in the breathless state,
In the darkness of the room.
The only thing to comfort me,
Are the dreams to come,
And I fall into my restless sleep.
I dream of you and my breath sparks,
You are my breath and my hope,
To get through the next day.
So I smile as I dream,
Because I am with you,
Wishing my dreams will never end.
I awake, yet my breath dies again,
Because without you,
Every start of my day is really the end.
