As I lay this night waiting for sleep to arrive

As I lay this night waiting for sleep to arrive

I have a fantasy of a life that includes you

To have you close, by my side this night

Talking of life’s day, our dreams together

Things we could do, things we might say.

So on this lonely night when I sleep alone

I think of you and things that will never be



  1. Never say never 🙂 Some of the things I thought would “never” be have happened. Leave room for hope.

    • Hi Coin & Feather, thanks for the words of encouragement, I know there is always hope but sometimes it doesn’t feel like there is.

  3. oh this is lovely.

    sorry it sounds so sad.

    i agree, there is always hope. and dreams.

    • Hi Bex, no need to feel sorry but yes I guess it is sad, I get like that sometimes, I guess we all do.
