Lie with Me

I'm physically worn out,
I'm mentally exhausted,
My emotions are sleeping,
My body has emptied,
Yet still I am trying,
To achieve my dream,
Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger they say?
Then why am I the weakest I've ever been?
I'm working on overdrive,
I'm like a machine,
I have a deadline to meet,
I need to salvage the remainders of my dream,
My blood pressures low,
My oxygen is thin,
I will beat this operation,
And although I'm going at it alone,
I need you to follow me,
Just whisper guidence through the winds,
And I will listen willingly,
And as the darkness falls,
And the daylight fades,
Remember with me,
As I reminise of our days,
If I talk...listen,
If I joke...laugh,
Don't you shed no tears for me,
Because they've already been had,
And as the night goes on,
Throughout my years,
As I struggle to drift off,
Besotted with my fears,
Blank my mind from the worst one of all,
To lose my children whom I should keep,
Just lie with me, until I fall asleep.
