As I Lie Here

i have no song today
only the music of the spheres
soaking up the light of one
as i lie here

frozen by the regrets
and the weight of my years
needing a thaw
as i lie here

closing eyes to the red
the sun upon my lidded tears
seeking a reason to move
as i lie here

tis so hard to release
the weight of my fears
that i am irrelevant
as i lie here

would the world miss me
if i would disappear
another ghost among millions
as i lie here

such thoughts leave me breathless
i am not a seer
i must put aside the lying
and simply rest here
