I lie awake
In the still of the night

Talking to myself again...
As the sound of your voice,
Carries through
the breeze
As whispers in my ears,
As many nights before
As I see you again,
Time and again
And time again,
Only to lose you again..
And in my heart,
I wonder
If it's worth the pain,
The trials and tribulations
Standing between us
and this thing we have...
Will it last somehow,
or be lost forever
In the land of our dreams?
But wherever the answer lies,
or where it cares be
One thing for certain is,
I'm losing my mind...
To have but a shadow of you...
But not to be with you...
Not to laugh with you...
Not to cry with you...
Not to touch your face...
Not being there
To make your tears go away...
Without you,
I'd rather we've never met
Than to have met,
and be torn apart..

    Sigh. Wonderful. How I miss my mother... What a poignant way to start a sunday. She was a beautiful lady she was, my mum. Can I link to you my little blog? Am a newbie.
