The Night Sky

I may not embrace my fears with open arms
but at least I know them by name.

Life passes by before I can make sense of life's charms
and I know now that nothing can ever be the same. 

Those magical words that I'll never hear echo in my dreams
but even those dreams are suspended in black and white.

All the false promises of the day, nothing is what it seems
and I keep holding my breath for whatever truth is in the Light.

So for tonight I will glance up to the endless night sky
and try to learn a way to make time stop passing me by.

"If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


What will your legacy be? What legacies have you known?

Some leave this temporary home a hero.

This life is about to close and the end is near
But there is an opening, there is nothing to fear.
Can you hear them sing your name,
Can you see the amazing light?
I know you're tired, I know your body is weak
But you don't have anything left here to seek.
Your life has been full!
You have known love, you have known pain
You have seen things that didn't leave you the same.
Do you know that your memories will remain here?
We get to keep those, we will always hold them dear.

Someone up there is waiting for you, you'll see them soon
Tell her we love her when you do.
You can let go now, it's okay.
Your time here is done, there's nothing left to say.

We'll miss you for a lifetime, but our lives are but seconds to you now.
