I lie in bed, waiting for darkness to envelope me.
I ask the night to allow my mind to rest, and my soul to slumber.
I beg for the memories of my haunting past to be lost, and ripped asunder.
I plead for mercy and blessings to be bestowed upon on the ones I love.
I know you can grant this to me, as you watch from above.
I hope that dawn comes, and beckons me to rise once again.
So that I may live and love, this all I ask.
