Suspended

Daring to dream
Reaching even higher
Holding on tighter
Can’t let go
All my strength
Wearing out fast
Starting to slip
Can’t let go
Mind over matter
Hanging on threads
Losing my grip
Can’t let go
Starting to fade
Won’t look down
Someone catch me
Can’t hold on
One last prayer
Holding my breath
Saying silent goodbyes
Must let go
An outstretched hand
Gives me hope
One last chance
Can’t let go
