Sleepless Night - Poem by Michael P. McParland

A sleepless night just lying here in bed,
holding back the tears any way I can.
I come so close to breaking down
just by the drop of a random hat,
I want to let it go but can't.
I miss my one and want her back,
in her arms I could let go and relax.

A sleepless night that stretches on and on,
this pain just deepens far and wide,
an empty pit that confirms the truth I've always known.
That without you I'll never love again
and I'll forever be alone.
I can't love another as I do my Angel,
a sleepless night to sit and ponder.
Will I see you once again?
Do you love me still my only one?
Will we have our chance to be hand in hand?
Will I have the chance to tell and show you all?

A sleepless night and I want you here,
to hold so close and feel you near.
Be surrounded in both our loving warmth,
knowing that I'm wanted and truly loved.
To share with you all I am,
everything I hold is all yours,
my world is open if you'll step through the door.
It's something I want to share with only you.
On this sleepless night so very long
I bask in tender thoughts of you.
I love my sweet Angel dove and want you
to forever be right by my side.
You my darling are my hope and pride.
