I can still hear angels weeping

They weep for you and me

Trust, love and even words that were not spoken.
So close to death I've stood it's awkward
Despite the troubles always moving onward.

And in that dream a hope
Somewhere peacefully gleaming

Yet I lay with my eyes wide open
Because I just refuse to be tired and broken
I stay my gaze at ceiling
In thoughts I search for healing.
