    when i woke this morning
    i found that i had weeped
    tear drops dampened my pillows
    as sweat marks stained my sheets
    i thought it had been a dream
    in which i cried the whole night through
    gut-wrenching pains racked my body
    whenever i thought of you

    when i woke this morning
    my eyes were a puffy red
    my body was very sore
    as i pulled myself from bed
    i tried to remember my dream
    in which i cried the whole night through
    but all that i could capture
    were my sorrowful thoughts of you

    when i woke this morning
    i vowed that i'd be standing strong
    to let go of this pain
    so my heart and soul could move on
    to walk outside my door
    and feel the sun upon my face
    to gaze upon GOD's creatures
    for, this new day, i'd embrace

    after journeying through this day
    i've held that feeling close at hand
    i know that i can get over yesterday
    in my heart, i know i can

    now i lay back down to sleep
    i pray it's a restful night
    in which i sleep the whole night through
    and wake to a blissful, morning sight

    when i wake tomorrow
    i'll begin my lonely journey, anew
    to put this aching pain behind me
    and forget that i did ever know you

    ****!!!!

    Was it...Is it that bad. Deep i must say. do what you gotta do. I'm truly loving this...and surely feeling it. I couldn't have said it better...I probably wouldn't have said it at all. Although I'd probably be thinking it. Okay i'm rambling.

    Anyways...looking forward to some more.
