Kind whispers reach me
I awake
I realize I wasn't buried
I was just sleeping

Soft hands touch me
I breathe
I realize I wasn't dead
I was just forgotten

Sweet lips kiss me
I sense
I realize I wasn't lost
I was just numb

In the limbo I've been lingering on
Floating between the dense fog of pain and the slight haze of hope
Watching love slowly withering inside me
Collapsing on my own broken self

Perhaps you may not know
But you've rescued me from my bitter solitude
My limbo has evanesced

I'm alive again
