Lie Awake - Poem by Mark Bauch

I lie awake, and remain in a different mind state
A different surrounding, a different place
My brain is numb from all the breaks that I take
It's up to the one who can create, to determine my fate
I wonder if I have clean slate, but that's just food off the plate
With no cake, everyone makes a mistake
No one's perfect in this hectic place
Treating life like a race, but I think I'll take a slower pace
Because nice guys finish in last place
Unless your able to touch base, with a certain face
A certain someone in a special place
One you love to embrace and kiss on the face
Hold hands and walk around the lake
The one who's in your mind making you lie awake
Wondering if it's too late, to aks her on a date
Wondering if she feels the same way, ah what more I need to say
Everything's okay in my life this day, and as I lie awake
I think of that mistake I made when I didn't participate
To ask her out, I must of been afraid
So as I lie in the shade and drink lemonade cause its just a hot day
I think what makes my mind go stray
The feelings that i have, will they ever go away?
Or will they stay with me until my dying day?
My love will then shed, but the feeling will never be dead
Rain drops keep falling on my head, and as I get out of bed
I remember what some one said

'Stay awake, stay strong always move along never slow down, the head stays up unless your nodding to a song, don't let nobody get in your way no one can ruin your day, always pray, you can't start nothing unless you press play'

That's some real shit, think about it for a minute
Ah, you got it, you feel it, you need it, you want it
Just like me and that certain someone, maybe a loved one
The whole universe is yours but you only want the sun
Once you have her your search is done and you become one and one
But once you have her, you can't lose her, don; t disrespect her
Treat her with the best of you, treat her how you want her to treat you
Don't act like a fool, and if you argue just try to keep your cool
Take a deep breath and say I love you
Because if you think what you went through to get her to be with you
You probably won't disrespect her and always be true
And never forget to say I love you.
