    Another day, passes within the light of my life
    night falls upon me, cruel like my lonliest day
    I reach for you...but your not here, beside me
    I inhale the scent that lingers from memory within
    so sweet the taste of kisses lipid & quick, wait....
    can I get another kiss before my eyes open & I
    find you once again gone....wait please don't go
    don't send me back to reality, see I haven't had
    my fill....Awakened by the tears left streaming
    down my cheeks, I feel so empty, oh yeah then
    the ache begins, my heart breaks once more
    I held you too tight, I breathe your very existance
    I am an abomination of myself.....my own doing
    restless in a daze, I move about motionless, see
    I do day-to-day well, I can fake the smiles, but...
    when night falls.... there's no one here but me
    "me " where "we" used to be. I still hear your
    voice sweetly calling my name, hauntingly
    chanting as I fall asleep...'Cause sleeps where we meet
    sleeps where we cheat...that's where we cheat death
    I can hold you, I can touch you, I can kiss you,
    I can do the impossible & breathe life into you
    I can have my forever with you, indefinite I am
    with you, while I'm asleep I'm peace with you
    My-lover-my-friend-my-soul's-contender....I am
    at an end without you, I live to dream for you
    with you, about you....when night falls I cry for you
    I cry with you, most of all I cry for me, cause......
    when night falls, I know it won't last long enough
    soon the light will shine thru my window of pain
    Once again I have to begin, without you.....
    But when night falls.....I'm alive loving you

    dreams can be filled with beauty, but sometimes we have to wake in the night hours to the emptiness of what is left when the dream is over....this peace was beautiful in it's sadness...
