To my deceased Gods wishin' I could bring you back
But life is a dream and y'all taught me that

from Nas – We Will Survive Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He cleverly finishes the letter saying he wishes he can bring back Tupac and Biggie but wishing is like a dream, which is a part of life.

Nice conclusion here. Another meaning could be that Nas starts confessing his wish to bring them back to life and finishes it all asserting his wish actually makes no sense since life is a dream.

In other words, death wakes us all up so he has to accept their awakening, cope with his asleep status and wait for his upcoming very own awakening…
