Before I sleep

I lie awake at night

I lie awake, searching for you

Searching in the cracks on the ceiling

I lie awake, thinking of where I’ve been

I lie awake, thinking of where you are now

I lie awake, as tears roll up my cheek and onto my brow

I lie awake, as life goes on without me

I lie awake

I lie awake, as the sun gropes the horizon

As it gropes the horizon and climbs into the sky

I lie awake, as sleep gets dressed and shamefully walks out the door

I lie awake

I lie awake, because you never said goodbye

But I sleep, to dream, to see your face once more

I lie awake, until I am awake no more

Tell me what you think
