I can’t get you off my mind;
Thoughts of you keep me awake at night.
I toss and turn; there is no relief,
Not until you are again laying next to me.
I dream and dream of touching your face,
But you’re nowhere to be found when I wake.
I only see you when I close my eyes.
When I open them, it’s no surprise,
That you’re not here.
I find myself staying up and waiting,
Thinking of you and contemplating.
I don’t want to wait another year, month, week, day,
Hour, minute, second, to see your face.
These dreams are torturing me in the night,
Dangling what I want most in my sight.
These dreams are more like beautiful nightmares.
I wake up and you’re gone; it’s unfair
To make me believe you’re here.
