Waking up Alive

 

Open your eyes

and smile.

Let the light in

and breathe a sigh.

Another night has passed,

another storm gone,

and we’re alive.

 

I can’t imagine

a better reason

to celebrate.

Passing through

the darkness,

surviving

all those monsters

we create.

 

Sometimes

the greatest

feeling in the world

is waking up alive.

You smile at me

and I can’t believe

my eyes.

 

There you are,

and I am here, too.

We found a way

to face the night

and make it through.

 

There is no

greater victory

to celebrate

than today.
