Requiem for my dreams
I used to dream of happy times
I used to dream of future times
My dreams were varied and often
I used to laugh in my sleep while I dreamt
I used to love to sleep; so I could escape in my dreams
But all that changed the day you left.
Unhappiness, misery and sorrow has entered my heart
I no longer dream in my sleep
My dreams have been taken over by nightmates
I seldom sleep during the night
I seldom want to sleep anymore on fear of waking up
I want to close my eyes and never arise.
My dreams have left me
They've packed their bags and gone away
I feel abandoned, desolated and alone
Without my dreams there is no hope for the future
No happy ever afters, and no bright tomorrow's
This is now the reality of a life without any dreams
Instead of uncertainty, self doubt and self pity
I must say goodbye to my dreams.
So I write this Requiem for my dreams
A Requiem that will help me to let go
Let go of all the good happy times
And allow me to embrace this new darkness
I write this Requiem for my dreams
A Requiem to end all Requiem's
This is my final Requiem
To say farewell to my departed dreams.
