Steady now, as we fall down again.
Down into this, don't let me break or bend.
And everything now just doesn't make sense.
My deep wounds keep me from crossing this fence.
But I will see you again.
My heart is struggling to stay intact.
Feels like I've been all the way there and back.
It's 5:00am and I still haven't slept.
Twist me turn me and see that I've kept.
But how much more is there to go?
Until my heart fails, tell me what I need to know.
Because maybe I'll be seeing you again.
I hope to be with you then.
Just look me in the eyes, I'm wide awake.
Convince me, take me away.
Give me something to believe in.
Make me whole within.
Now I know I'll see you again.
I'll be waiting for that day then.
I'll be waiting for this to end.

The author's comments:
I would like to think that this poem relates to a loss, whether it be death, or a temporary separation. However, death is just that, a temporary distance from a loved one. I know we will all see each other again one day. And at the end of the poem, this person finally has enough faith to realize that death is not the end of the road.
