Treasure Island

Waking up without you


I slept so soundly, rolling over to put my atrms around you
thats when I realized you'd been gone now for day two
sadness settled in at the prospect of sleeping alone
but in my slumber, my heart refused to admit you were gone
eventually with this I'll come to my own form of terms
but in bed we were always closer than a pair of germs
in each others arms, we'd fall into some dreamland
the rest we aquired was nothing less than grand
now I haven't lost a whole lot of my important rest
but to wake in a lonely bed, puts my poor heart to the test
the very single part of a relationship I miss the most you see
is sleeping in your arms and the feeling of absolute safety

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
