I wish I may

I wish I might

I wish to get through one more night


To fight through pain

This midnight rain

These tears that pour down with it now

Let me hold on

Thoughts, please begone

I try but fear I don’t know how

The hurt, it rests inside my chest, a heart that’s heat could solder iron

Burns within with every sin and all their metaphoric fire

I beg release

A soothing peace

Things which only live in dream

Hope, bare to me

A Winter’s tree

Thirsting for just one small stream

The hollowed wood is truth, you see

It lies there in melancholy

Dead, or dying, all alone

Drifting into dark unknown


I wish I may

I wish I might

Please grant me strength to live, tonight
