Death Won't take me Now


it is dark, drove through the tunnel to discover the light
no the darkness won't devour me, not anytime in this life
like the sun, my spirit emits a light that shines so bright
intense like the ray of sunshine

where all of life begins to bloom
I was the match that dispelled gloom
and it would be anticipated
for those who have waited
in the recovery room
