My eyes have become swollen and my airway so tight,
Doing everything I can to make it through this long night.
I continue on past my aches and pain,
Just to provide a bit of financial gain.
I glow at the thought of getting some sleep,
For only a moment, the lord, my soul to keep.
Yet, I know none of this will happen until I am done,
When out from the darkness comes the morning sun.
