Darkness, a once feared enemy

Is now my closest friend

Light, once a welcome remedy

Now leaves me to contend

With relentless pain, my head screams

It will not let me be

My mind fills with frightening dreams

I do not want to see

Nothing wrong, it's all in your head

Fills me with intense fear

Could the day that's filled me with dread

Have, at last, gotten here.

Will it fade away fast or slow

My hold on reality

How long before the team will know

Their eyes filled with pity

I'll make myself do what is right

And not burden anyone

Give myself up to the night,

Head for the setting sun

I'll commit myself, as I've planned

No more this world to roam

My dearest mother close at hand

I'll finally be home.
