I awoke early

I awoke early
There’s a faint glimmer of light
On the room's window

This day like most days
Slaps me hard around the face
So I am still here

Death is impartial
His absence means I get up
Rather than sleep on

It has been raining
Someone’s been crying for me
Well that’s a comfort

I really love life
Which seems is my fatal flaw 
She will flirt with me

  2. Keep loving life and she will flirt with you

  3. "This day like most days / Slaps me hard around the face" - great lines! Hope the slaps are light :)
