Sleepless in Manila

23 May

For A♥

How hard it is to sleep

When you are out of reach

Across the bed I stare

At where you used to be

You are not there

There’s only absence, only air.

We’ve rarely been apart this long

I know I’ll never get used

To thousands of miles and open seas

Between us- an eternity, it seems

So I will not sleep till you return

And bring your calm to my unease.

Two nights almost at an end

But alas, there are three more.

Here in the darkness, in the din of rain,

I sit and wait, awake, alone

For you to come home, come soon,

And heal me of my pain.
