She listens in the darkness, no sounds can she hear
by lori mansfield
The world is closing in on her, death she feels is near
Was it really worth it, trying to overcome the feeling
Her emotions she knew had been something she was never good with dealing.....
fear overtakes her and she knows she doesn't want it to end
She tries to remember some good, maybe if she had just one friend
he was there, she only had to picture his face
Time was running out, was she going to lose the race?
She knew one time that he had indeed loved her so
Maybe just one more chance, she knew she couldn't go
the sounds started to come back, her mind became clear
He knew she wasn't leaving he could feel her near
She opened her eyes it took all she had in her
He was holding her hand when she began to stir
She smiled as she saw him and his face lit up like a light
I am back for you she was thinking, this time she won the fight!
