darlin you'll be okay

On May 1st

Once a year I celebrate the anniversary of a song I heard some time long ago
It lives inside these hollow bones,
And when I’m feeling quite lonely I let the sounds wash over me until I feel it breathing me back
to life.
In a moment of absolute static I disappear.
Forever I will relish in it’s sweet irony, rewinding the journey in my mind
I reflect on the last year and how the ache in my heart has grown, but so have I.
I awake, My flesh turns warm, surrounded by the sun I am not alone.
Today, once again I will sing at the top of my lungs while tears stream like joyful rivers down my
face, when all was lost I held on.
I’m grateful for this breath in my lungs
To be alive is such a frightfully beautiful thing
Now as the sun goes down I crack a smile and whisper lyrics like a prayer
Tomorrow is just hours away and I don’t want to miss a thing.
