Blowing Out Stars

Lost for what is out of my hands
These dreams that can't come true
Every tear I cry is a wordless prayer
When sadness accompanies every joyful memory of you

Every day I lose you again
Ethereal letters written
Sent care of heaven from my heart
Piece by piece I utter longing
What I would give to go back to the start

Love feels as freedom and yet entrapment
When death finds us an existence away
What is trauma but the translated torment of imagination
I can't bring you back no matter what I say

Is my faith hostage to my emotion
I choose to believe despite what I feel
My eyes speak a line of sight
Yet every word begs to question what is real

Caught between heaven and my best attempt to come alive
When living is like a losing battle in vain we fight to survive

Learning to relinquish the fear of loss
The pain of death is the suffering of all of us that go on to bear the cross

How is it that I can make a wish come true
When a candle blown is an empty promise to fulfill
I would that I could quench the stars for you

As if the grander sparks of the sky could inflame a stolen dream
Yet only in my mind I'm haunted by the memories enchantment
The way you sang of things unseen

Now and forever one
After the nightmare
Arise to the light of a truer sun

You embodied the faith you spoke
Where the cancer's will to take your life
Became the catalyst to heal

My only means to savor our bond
Is in every word I bleed upon the canvas of every page I spill...
