I must have died

Imust have died
I heard people crying
I could see them
But hey couldnt’t see me
I reached out to hold some one
But I couldn’t feel anything
I looked over to see me
Laying on the floor
Eyes open to the sky
I called out to you my dear
But you couldn’t hear me

I am so alone I am now
The nonfeeling of anything
No warmth or cool breeze
Hunger or pain for me
What are these light around me
Are they eyes of angels
This corridor of moments in my life
I am walking down now
I can see them all What did I say
Why did i lie that day
Oh I am so sorry mother
For making you cry
The words said have come back
The things I have done in my life
Have come back to hit me back

Oh there’s a moment
The birth of my frirst child
We cried from the joy of it all
To hold that tiny little bundle
Made even more proud it was a boy
I tried to make a life for us all
I didn’t mean to make you cry my wife
I drank and swore so much
In the early days of my life
My arrogant ways I am ashame

Then came the time of realisation
To make my life something meaningful
I had my ups and downs
I can see that we grew closer as we got older
We did as much as we could
There were not many days together
But I can see we loved each other more
So much more then before
My children grew so did we
My grand children gather around me
We love you poppy

Tug, tug, pull I’m coming back
What a joy of life I feel again
The feel of loving arms around me
The kisses that rain on me
The tears of relief that fall from and for me
The life without you my dear
Leaves me empty
I must have died
I saw the life of me
