The Reality of a Loss 1



If I didn’t have to wake up
Or dream another day
I could be at peace with myself
And all the sorrows would wash away

I could live each day forever
And never have to bat my eyes
Sleepiness will never come
And I wouldn’t have to ask why
Cause I could live in that moment forever
And not wake up and realize it’s a lie

If I didn’t have to wake up
Or dream another day
My heart would still be intact
And wouldn’t break anymore from pain

I would never have to go to sleep lonely
And wake up the next day
Wondering is this is the life laid out for me
And if it is ever going to change

If I didn’t have to wake up
Your arms would still be holding me tight
Making me believe that I am your EVERYTHING
Even though I know that is a lie
I would rather lay there happy
Then wake up disappointed the next day……

If I didn’t have to wake up
Or dream another day
Then my heart would be at peace
Living in the moment of that day
How I had thoughts that you would be here forever
And how you would always be by my side
But that moment remains a dream that plays inside my mind……

Over,
and Over,
and Over Again each night

So if I didn’t have to wake
Or dream another day
I wouldn’t wake up to disappointments
of the memories you and I have made
I would stay in your arms forever
Til light turns dark then light
And I will know the idea of you and I together always
Just might be right………
