It slipped my grasp, this bliss has flown away.
A sudden lapse, is sorrow here to stay?
So frail, collapse, do I have strength to swim,
or is it time to sing a final hymn?

I paid the price, flew too close to the sun,
with wings of wax, took Icarus’s plunge.
My strength has lapsed, I’m treading water now.
If hope can last, will someone show me how?
