An Image In The Dark - Poem by Guarded Heart

Now i lay me down to sleep
I close my eyes and begin to weep
And then i feel the hand upon my cheek
To wipe away the fears that creep
From the corners of my mind so deep

I open them up to see
The one that is standing over me
The outline of a face that haunts thee
Standing there i wish he'd touch me
Is he the same one that visits me in dreams?

But as i try to focus i can not see
I fear he is slipping away from me
Back into my romantic fantasies
Yet i know he is the key
To cure my nights of weeping
The image in the dark is all that i see
