Clarity

When it feels like the world is crashing down

I look to the sky

I breathe in the air

I start to question why

Then I realize that sometimes there is no answer

Sometimes there are no reasons

Looking at the beauty of the world brings me peace

It shows me that there is so much more to life than I see

I am grateful for these moments of clarity

I am grateful that I have the ability to see beyond me

My land of make believe 

I feel this weight crushing me 

I can no longer breathe

I want to stay in my land of make believe 

Where everything is how I want it to be

I want to be with the one who loves me 

In a world we have created 

In a world we will remain 

Keeping my mind in this place 

Is the only thing that keeps me sane 

Hold on

In the end what really matters 

Is that you find the one you need 

Hold onto him and do not let go 

Do not run too fast 

Do not run too slow

Just hold on to him 

Do not let the world dissuade you 

Do not let others hold you back 

Do not let obstacles block you 

Keep your head high and stay on track 

The only thing that you really need to know 

Is that love is the meaning of life 

Finding love is a gift 

A gift worth fighting for 

I will hold onto mine 

I will cherish him until the end of time

When I blink 

I listen as you breathe beside me

Trying to keep myself awake 

Telling myself I can do this without you

Knowing deep down that I cannot 

I listen as the cars pass below 

Staring out through the window 

Telling myself things will get better 

Knowing deep down that they won’t 

I see happiness beside me 

But when I blink it will be gone 

The irony of life is that 

When you are ready

It won’t let you move on 

Nyx 

Where I belong 

My love lays next to me 

I look at him and see 

Everything that matters 

Everything that is real 

My world has been found 

As I listen to the sound of his voice 

As I see the look of love in his eyes 

I don’t remember who I was 

I do know who I am 

I know where I belong 

In his arms where I should have been all along 

The pull

I am disconnected

No longer whole

So close we are 

So strong is the pull

I have never felt this way

I have never felt this need 

I am so grateful he comes today

I am lost without him 

I am no longer me 

I have become one with someone else 

I need him to be free

Nyx

When you took my heart

Maybe we were created 

Maybe we do have souls 

Maybe something split us in half 

All I know for sure 

Is that my love for you is real 

That the pull only continues to grow 

That when I feel my heart slow 

I know that yours does the same 

This was never going to be easy 

This we knew from the start 

But I knew it was more than worth it 

When you took my heart 

Alternate Universe

I want to believe that there is an alternate universe

Where pain and suffering do not exist

I want to live in a world

Where people have empathy and love for one another

A world separate from those who hate

A world where peace is all that exists

I am a dreamer so I will dream

That people no longer suffer

That people no longer sustain

The ignorance of those that see them

As so different from themselves

In my universe there is no one standing

Pointing fingers or placing blame

Because we really are no different

Deep down we are all the same

Hello Darkness my dear 

Hello darkness my old friend

It’s nice to see you again 

I know you’re creeping 

As I’m sleeping 

I know you’ll be there in the end 

Oh dear friend how are you 

It hasn’t been too long 

Are you hear to catch my tears 

Are you hear to sing me a song 

Well darkness at least I know you 

You are definitely real 

In the end when you take me 

Can you take away my ability to feel 

Haze of love

In this haze of love 

I see colors clearly

I see beauty in everything

I see beauty in him 

I can’t wait to walk the world together 

I can’t wait to walk down the aisle to him

I can’t wait for my together forever to begin
