A Heartfelt Thank You

(Thank you for saving my life......I will never forget what you did that day....from my heart to yours)

The hurt I held I could not face
I had my last hurrah, my fall from grace
I chose to walk in the hands of death
Because I felt there was nothing left

I took them all, yes every last pill
And prayed God to take me with all of my will
I could not stand life with this heartache
If I had bent any more I would surely break

But as silent and soft my breath did fall
An angel reached out with his call
Making me see that all would be well
And pulling me out of this newborn hell

All I heard was don't close your eyes
A heart that pleaded among the cries
I know now someone watches over me
And my death was not supposed to be

Is saying thank you going to be enough?
For keeping me strong as things got tough
I finally see I have to survive...
But if it weren't for him...I would not be alive
