Waves of gratitude

Laying there
Like a corpse
My eyes were closed
My body was still
Taking shallow breaths
No one could rouse me
I was asleep in my flesh
Until I heard you speak
I couldn't imagine life
Without pain
By my life
By my failures
I epitomized defeat
But then you came
And I was awakened
You stirred my heart
Into beating
I could be a fool for believing
But you awoke my soul
By giving it wings
And I could fly
By my knowing
That you live
You live
