Over My Head - Poem by Edwin Baldwin

I'm chasing after your shadow in my sleep
A recurring memory that I'd fallen way to deep

Happy couples pass by me on the street
A taste I remember still O so sweet

It's all so useless to me now
Though it has served me well some how

Sad drops falling to the ground
visit me at the lost & found

had I been missing the larger picture and the warning sign
foolishly feeling for once you could be my happy ending
running around in circles falling a footstep or two behind
hitting that same old wall brought us no love for mending

Thirsty hearts once beating together in the night
Our pieces quenched in places O so right

Angels stopped by to wish us well
Smiling at the two of us because they could tell

One day mountains will crumble into the sea
Though our dreams will forever and always be

Guess that's why I can't keep you off my mind
God knows I've looked for away that I can't find

Chasing after your shadow in my sleep
A recurring memory I am falling way to deep

It's all so useless to me now
Though it does serve me well some how

I will catch hold of you my love one night
Even if it's only kissing and hugging my pillow tight

Here I go tossing and turning once again
Hopefully this time there will be a happy end
