Stuck inside a question
And an answer you can't give
Which words do we use
To come to terms with this
I see you lying there
You smile
But are you lost inside
Imprisoned in yourself
Language barriers
Your heart speaks beyond words
Open your eyes
I'll listen to what you're trying to say
The light interprets
Both their joy and their sorrow
Waiting for you to return
Will I see you tomorrow?
Or is hope a tomorrow that never comes
As we're left longing for a miracle
Yet failing to see
Death is as beautiful as birth
When all is said and done
In a place that you'll be whole
Flesh like a cocoon, reborn as it breaks
To set at liberty your soul
Symmetry like a mirror
An image within
Caught in a parallel existence
Somewhere between glory and sin
Translate reality
From this place, a foreign shore
Filtering a message
SOS for something more
This is war, contending
Against loss and all I've done
30 years gone by, I still need you
Past the days of 31
Waiting rooms, I'm outside
A day away from the moment that we met
The anniversary of our first hello
It's not time for goodbye yet
Would I ever truly be ready
You love me through it all, even my regret
Hospital commemoration
From maternity, to psych wards, and critical condition
Close ones with close calls
Bedside confessions and heart to heart admission
Open letters, my unsung sentiments
If it would bring you out
I'll write a song for you
If you are the melody, I'm just a harmony
Trying to find my place in the tune
You are my light in the gray
You are the day and I am the moon
Tell me, how do I reflect on you?

I wrote this around my 31st birthday to my mom who at the time was critically ill before she passed. My birthday was March 7th, she passed on the 28th of 2020. The poem and image is my own, the background music is royalty free music I found online and added.
