Sleep that you'll never wake up from
Sleep so peaceful, no one can interrupt your dreams
Loneliness sinks into the void of emptiness
Embrace the numbness, as the cold envelopes you

It'll all be over soon
The darkness isn't so bad, is it?
Because the pain will stop and everything will fade
But your memory forever remains

All your feelings melt away
You can finally release
So many times, you've felt pain
So many times, you were sad
They seemed to consume all that was light
But now in this final breath
As you exhale, entering rest

It'll all be over soon
The darkness isn't so bad, is it?
Because the pain will stop and everything will fade
But your memory forever remains

Sleep, and awake in newness of the bright sky
Sleep, and waken to the victory over these chains
When you exhale your last breath
Just know, you'll be inhaling, like the first time

Do you know the Light?
Reach your hand, let the Light envelope you
Just this once, let a prayer escape your lips
Let the doubt slip away and melt into the darkness

It'll all be over soon
The darkness isn't so bad, is it?
When a flame dances atop the candlestick
You won't be afraid

Because the pain will fade and everything will stop
When the light invades the darkness of your world
Rescuing the heart

Sleep that you'll someday wake up from
Sleep so peaceful, no one can interrupt your dreams
Despite how much it hurts, I realized the gift God gave me last night...
....the rare chance to say goodbye.

Today, the nurse of one of the voice actors on my team, who was also a dear friend, told me he had passed away in his sleep...it was painless. Last night, he told me he knew it was time. Some of the other team were on, and we had a Skype call and enjoyed laughing with each other with him one last time. I promise we'll do our best for you! We will miss you, you awewintastic person! 

In loving memory of Alexander "Nightydreams" Kwan.

this is a truly beautiful and moving poem.  every word has so much meaning, everything coming together in a way that's full of so much emotion, it can relate to so many different people.  as i was reading it, it was sad, but also happy and a bit hopeful, despite obviously being about death.  when i read the description, it made so much sense.  you have a gift with words and conveying your emotion.  thank you for sharing this. <3

Hello. I'm Alex's little sister.
I was searching through Alex's laptop and managed to find you here.
My parents and I read this and I just wanted to thank you for writing this. I'm really grateful that Alex had a friend like you. Thank you for dedicating this to him and making his last moments really count.
Thank you so much ^^.

Ah! It's nice to meet you. I was really happy I knew him, and I was glad to have spoken to him so we could say goodbye. I also showed him this before he went. I still miss him a lot, but I hope things are going alright on your end, too. I'm glad this song could be special ^.^

It's nice to meet you too ^^
I often heard him skyping to you and to other's. I was always so embarrassed to say anything though, so Alex would just talk about you guys after your skype calls have ended.
My family is slowly moving on. I know he wouldn't want us to dwell on his passing. We all miss him.
I'm glad Alex got to read this. Thank you again. ^^
