Lonely Nights Poem

Lonely Nights

Restless, wide awake, my head spinning around
Reaching out to touch you, but you are nowhere to be found

I look out of my window, know you are under the same sky
We are no longer together, and I have to question why?

We laughed and cried together, had some really special times
Now when I think of you, my words come out in rhymes.

My nights are cold, I shiver so much
Longing, aching, to feel your touch

I while away the hours, try to keep myself buzy
But the constant thoughts of you, make me feel so dizzy

I saw you tonight, we both smiled and said hello
I turned my face away from you, so the hurt would not show

As I lay here in my darkened room, my bed seems incredibly bare
I touch your pillow, shed a tear, wishing you were here!
