Strength Within. - Poem by Luis octavio. Mora

It's like I'm jumping in an ocean, when I can't even swim.
As I'm splashing and stroking, yet I can't just give in.
I'm forgetting what's at focus, As my breatheline runs thin.
Yet I'm praying and I'm hoping, Cause your my strength that's within.
I'm forgetting what's important as my body runs cold.
The dreams of you my laughter, As our bodies grow old.
The strength I get from you my dear, Could get me through it all.
This is why I can't give in, And let this feeling fall.
As I hear your voice inside my head, I wake up again!
Fighting through this mess I'm in, I feel you with in!
As I hold my breathe and try to swim, These waves keep crashing down.
But I hear your voice inside my head, Saying please don't let me down. (please don't let me down.)
As I get the strength to get to shore, My body can't go more.
So I close my eyes and try to rest, yet all I see is a white closed door.
As I reach the door to see within, This strength keeps pulling back.
So I open my eyes to a thick white light, hearing a voice in tears.
As it gives me the strength to look back up, Diminishing all my fears.
A warmth aside got me feeling alive, Like an angel from above.
So crying in tears, I say ' Let go of your fears, it's ok I'm here... My love...'
