I close my eyes and pray to forget, I dream of the sun preparing to set, This lifes realities I can no longer take, These sequence of events I try hard to break. My eyes re-open in search of the light, The sun no longer is shining bright, The darkness is setting in so very fast, My fears are met,no peace at last. I try hard to remember some happier days, When the sun was high and I basked in its rays, But these times are gone and never to return, My future rests,in hell I will burn. I reach for the bottle and raise it to my lips, The alcohol now threw my fear it rips, My thoughts have slowed and my fears in hand, The hourglass slowly releasing its sand. I can touch the end at last it seems, The sun forever more in my heart will beam, This mental life I must now concede, And face my maker,in hell I bleed.
