Wake me up!

Wake me up!
this must be a dream
this isn't the way it's suppose to be.
This is not the life I dreamt about
I don't want to be sick
I don't want to have doubt
why us, why now?

They all say I'm strong, but often I feel weak
they don't see me cry and ask God
why me? why me?, why when we just
got our family complete?

I cry for my family, I cry for my kids,
will they forgive me if I don't get through this?

I'm thankful for my life
for each and every day
I'm thankful for my daughter
I'm thankful for my sons
I'm thankful for the strength to
carry on.

Please God, don't take me away
I'm not ready to go home
won't you give me more time,
maybe until my kids are grown?

Tell me everything will be ok
Tell me God will let me stay.
