Up all night
Unable to sleep
I close my eyes
The pain’s so deep.

I toss and turn
Change my position
But, can’t escape
My thoughts or visions.

I see your face
I hear your voice
I don’t want to
But, have no choice.

You come and go
You’re in my dreams
Most every night
Or, so it seems.

The door is closed
It’s locked and sealed
No concern
For how I feel.

Off to sleep
I close my eyes
It’s time to say
At last, goodbye.
