Let me die before I wake...

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

When the sunlight fades across a broken world,
A voice gently calls me to me, to stories yet untold.
Slumber slowly takes me, away from all the pain
A beautiful voice calls to me,
It calls to me,
It calls to me,
I hear him speak my name,

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

When moonlight spreads across a blackened place,
In my head there is light, I see only his face.
My spirit soars to where it is meant to be
I beg for him to take me,
Take me away from here,
Take me away from here,
I see him smile and take my hand,

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

When rain pours down over a bleeding earth,
In blissful dreams I lie unaware,
Away from the world of pain and regret,
In my head I am who I was born to be,
I do what I was born to do,
I see what I was meant to see,
And there’s no one to stop me,
There’s no one to stop me,

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

Please God hear me before I die
Let my life become my dreams
At night my soul is whole
Let it be so in the real world…
Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

    For those who wake to the same day again and again , who know the distress of darkness , who feel alone and misunderstood.
    This poem is for them.
    ’’for when the sun rises I am empty again"

  • indeed it is, but is also for those who struggle on, who hope for the world to change, that maybe tomorow will be the day, maybe something will change when the sun rises…maybe….
