I fell before the line
But knew I had to finish.
Although broken in several places
My heart would not diminish.
Although sound had escaped me
And taste was nought but ash,
A light brought me back home
With one simple blinding flash.
And a figure clear stood before me
A tear in its eye;
Smiling and nodding peacefully
Before starting to cry.
I knew that face, I knew that tear
But still I lay so still.
So the figure moved towards me
As my life felt so surreal.
It lifted me up and held me close
Brushing hair from my face
And carried me slowly onwards
To drop me at my place.
And drowned with sleep my eyes did close
And there it hid away
Waiting for when I’d need it next
Waiting for another day.
