John Hess (Fayetteville, N.C.)
I Think of You
When I wake, I think of you,
on my mind it's nothing new.
Kid myself, I dream and hope;
no other way, can I cope.
Our marriage now, coming to end;
not something I wanted, but now I bend.
I love you, with every breath I take;
something of me, I could not forsake.
Yes we have, we've hit the wall;
arguing and fighting, this seems our call.
Words we throw, like fighter's fist;
clouds our minds, like the devil's mist.
Hurt and pain, now in our hearts;
where once was love, that could never part.
Where time and space, didn't matter;
as long as we believed, nothing would shatter.
Now I stand here, when two hearts were one;
searching for lost love, in the morning sun.
Tears on my cheek, and memories of you;
hold me and tease me, through and through.
When I wake, I think of you;
impossible to forget, this be true.
Kid myself, I dream and pray;
knowing always, my feelings at bay.
