Was it just a dream? The life i once had. The joy, and smiles that were once part of my daily life. The people i knew? Were they there? They tell me yes, Yet i feel it was but a dream of an ideal place. Certainly the pain is real. The pain that caries me to sleep, The pain that awakens me in the day. If but i could return to that place... Where joy was real. It feels as though life were a dream, Why did i have to wake up? If but to sleep once more, And wake to where i was.. I would gladly sleep forever more.
