Who I am today

Layin' in bed,
Just tryin' to get some sleep,
Thoughts are racin' through my head,
They come abundantly,
Got my mind on mommy and mommy on mind,
Playin' back those memories,
Seems like the thousandth time,

Cold and vacant stare,
A heart without a beat,
He brushed aside her hair,
and tried to hear her breathe,
CPR wouldn't win,
And then finally,
The metics pulled in,
They freakin missed our street,

But I know,
I know It'll be ok,
The sun'll come out always,
Everyday is a good day,
Just take a moment to appreciate,
And I don't,
I don't need to push 'em away,
Memories are here to stay,
Just stand up and be brave,
That's why I am who I am today,

Forty minute drive,
At the sky I stared,
Hoped she was alive,
Mind full blast in prayer,
By the time we arrived,
Pegasus had been there,
Took her off the pony ride,
Rushed into intensive care,

Not a lot to say,
Silence filled the air,
What was the delay,
Everyone was scared,
We sat and waited,
For answers to be bared,
The doctor stated,
She's in coronary care,

But I know,
I know It'll be ok,
The sun'll come out always,
Everyday is a good day,
Just take a moment to appreciate,
And I don't,
I don't need to push 'em away,
Memories are here to stay,
Just stand up and be brave,
That's why I am who I am today,

On a different floor,
In another waiting room,
Doctors came through the door,
There was little they could do,
They offered operation,
It almost promised doom,
There was no time for patience,
He said decide soon,

Stood beside her bed,
It was just us two,
Leaned down and kissed her head,
By this point I knew,
Searched for the right words,
Said my last goodbye,
Even though it hurt,
Didn't let myself cry

But I know,
I know It'll be ok,
The sun'll come out always,
Everyday is a good day,
Just take a moment to appreciate,
And I don't,
I don't need to push 'em away,
Memories are here to stay,
Just stand up and be brave,
That's why I am who I am today.

Ah, I love this one! Is it a song?  You're good at expressing emotions, and it had a nice flow. You definitely have talent! You seem very sincere and I respect you for staying optimistic, you must be very strong.

It's hard to be brave when o beloved is perishing. You captured that emotion here with a touch a bravery in a beautiful manner. Keep writing songs like this. Who knows it might be your forte?

Beautiful! I don't often describe things on here as beautiful, but this truly deserves it! I don't read songs on here, either, but I am glad I chose to today, this was very sweet and sincere. The emotion in here is simply mind-boggling. I felt everything! You're a great poet and song-writer and I encourage you to keep writing. If this is true, I am terribly sorry!
