When the Day Comes
7/4/2020

Falling asleep

I think of you

Wishing you were

Here with me.

I reach for you

Feeling the cold of

The empty bed.

Falling asleep

I dream of you

Kissing me soft

Filled with heat.

Falling asleep

I cry silent tears

Filled with such regret

For your absence.

When the day comes

I’ll be on my own

Stranded in a light

That I have never known

When the day comes

I’ll be laid bare

For all yo see

That no one was there.

When the day comes

I hope I catch my breath

From my crazy mind

Racing my heart to death.

When the day comes

I’ll know I was right

To stay alive

Long enough to see the light

…when the day comes…
