Sleepless Within...

2a.m, sitting in my room
Alone and lonely
Unable to sleep
Suffering from winters gloom
The forecast predicts black and cloudy
No promise of a tomorrow
Be thankful for another TODAY
Raindrops, like teardrops, fall whispering loudly
Sadness is not invited into this heart
But don't question the reason
Imagine the best of everything
Trust, in Life's play, God wrote us each our very own part
I am not new, I have been here before
Time passes, leaving memories in its wake
Hearts break and dreams die
Yet, it's the din of silence I abhor
Don't open the closet if the truth scares you
Complete your thoughts, even if you don't share
Let go of the dead weight you carry
Be open to both new and old, accept you've done all you can do
