Lonely Night

The day is lonely,
the night long, cold
and empty without you

Sleep slipped away yesternight
because I swam in thoughts of you
sleep simply walked away
because you are far away

It's painful sitting alone here
without your disarming presence
each time I glance at the door
desiring to see you
walk in to ease my lonesome night

I sit here all night
waiting to hear your sweet voice
fill my empty night

Here I am
in profound thoughts
wishing you return
to my warm embrace...

I always forget and reread it. Wonderful.

Amanda K
straight from the heart words here speak and at night feelings do rage out of love especially if the one we do adore is far or apart. Well-done my friend.

This poem really tuched my heart, I liked it :)
