Sweet Visions

Spoken softly into the night
Though in the dark, he speaks of light
Promises of brighter days
Are only words in the haze
Of sleep and wake within her mind
Stirring dreams of a tender kind
Replacing nightmares that used to haunt
With sweeter visions that seem to taunt
In a love so true she just can’t conceive
But he won’t give up making her believe

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


Days Gone By

She looks at what she’s become
At all she’s built that’s come undone
Memories still linger on
Of the days that are long gone
Of a life that she could not keep
She sees now only in her sleep
But still each day she puts on this show
How broken she is they’ll never know
She’ll smile and pretend everything’s right
But behind closed doors, tears still fall each night


Your Embrace

In my dreams I’m in your embrace
When I wake your kiss I still taste
It lingers softly upon these lips
And the beating within my heart skips
The warmth of your body close to mine
Stays with me like the sweetest red wine
Hands that caress so gentle and soft
Will keep this dream and my heart aloft
Until in these arms I hold you once more
This dream will burn within me to my core


Your Touch

I lie in bed and think of you
And think of all the things you do
Remembering that gentle kiss
And your burning gaze that I miss
I long to feel your tender caress
Because in your arms I must confess
There’s a safety I long to feel
That I never knew could be real
In your arms I long to sleep
So that feeling I can keep


Perpetual Night

Waking up to such grim skies
Searching for the sun to rise
But night still lingers overhead
Its dark cloak it has yet to shed
The hour young as the clock ticks slow
Seeming like the night may never go
Each minute passing feels like an hour
Over time, it seems, this night has power
Closing eyes once more, wishing to slumber
But that peaceful sleep those tocks encumber


Sweet Escape Lost

Oh to drift into that blissful sleep
Where worries fade as I fall so deep
And mind is clear of all life’s weight
Dreams are sweet and there is no hate
To fall into such a sweet embrace
Where happiness is all that I chase
Where fear and sadness have no place
Seeking sanctuary in that space
But that peaceful bliss continues to elude me
And these long nights seem to remain a certainty
