Weary

Upon her face, weariness so deep
Deprived of rest and deprived of sleep
Eyes are sunken and face so pale
Those around pondering her tale
But the reasons elude even her
As the days and nights pass in a blur
And blissful sleep just out of reach
Though to the night she does beseech
“For just this once do not pass so quick
Let the clock slow down its endless tick
Let time stand still within this night
So I may have the strength to fight
All of the battles waiting for me
That have kept me down on bended knee”
But by the night, her pleas unheard
And the daylight comes, undeterred


Another Night, Another Day

In the haze of dreams you lie beside me
Kissing me soft and holding me tightly
But the sweetest dreams always give way
To the dawn of yet another day
And as I wake I no longer find you
Lying next to me with those eyes so true
And time moves on and the sun will rise
As I blink away dreams from my eyes
Another night with only dreams to hold
Yet a day closer to a love so bold
