Do you remember the thunder in the clouds?
The way we held each other as if tomorrow would never end.
We sat under the trees and wish for better days.
Not knowing that they have already come and gone.
The dreams are no longer coming true.
Do you remember how we thought this would last?
The moment we said I do was the last day that we cared.
Rain pouring down our face, yet we see the sun as bright as day.
The shadow creep around the corner, and yet you no longer wonder is that me.
Do you remember when the first time you smile?
Was it because of me or did the sun hit your eyes?
I have lost my words.
Nothing is real.
I do not remember who you are.
I just need to know.
Do you remember me?
I see the hope that has my future.
I taste the stress that holds my tongue.
I feel the love that is on my arm.
I hear the thoughts that make me cry.
I smell the desire that wants it all.
These are the things that make me love you.
These are also the things that brings me pain for you.
I chose them all just because they are you.
I awoke today and I felt free.
The hell I was living was no longer a dream.
The thought of going in a circle had finally stop.
I look in the mirror and saw my head still lowered down.
Is this me?
The person who seems so free but cannot see.
Hurt has given me everything that I wanted.
It gave everything but the ability to be.
I call the pain, but it is no longer free.
It has caused me so much, yet I stay paying the price for me.
A time will come where I will fly.
That is not now, so I will try not to die.
It is easier said than to be done.
Now I must go back to and try once more.
Will I make it no one knows?
Maybe when I awake, I can finally see me.
There you are I have not seen you in a while.
How is the light treating you?
Is it everything you wanted, is it showing you your dream?
Do not let me get in your way, this is what you have always wanted.
You have always wanted the love that was around, but you never found.
The things that seemed so wrong have always made you feel right.
Then what happen you lost it all.
You realize the hopes are for the ones that likes to dream.
That was never you and now you are back with me.
We meet again this time it is not for fun.
This time it will last.
Forever is a while.
The pain is here is stay, and this time you will pay.
So, darkness are you there?
There are no more tears to cry.
The burden that held me down is no more.
Suddenly now I can see the sky through the clouds.
I can hear the singing of the birds.
I can see me.
The pain of going has changed to the joy of what is new.
This is the now the old is no more.
The worry about not being seen to not caring who is seeing.
What was hurting me healed me when I walked away.
That life is gone.
I feel no shame.
I came to the wind and ask for directions.
It sent me here to place that has no name.
The place that was never a dream.
The place that will carry me.
I can be calm as the storm.
I can stand tall as the mighty trees.
I can just for once be me.
