Tired Tears - Poem by Michael P. McParland

Feeling awful tired my dear because
I still haven't laid down though I
desperately need too.
I miss you so much and am distracting
myself in a number of ways but they don't help.
I still just ache and miss you though
not crying just yet.
When I lay down though I know they'll
flood my pillow as I'll have to hide under
the covers not letting anyone know or suspect
the longing aching tears I do shed.

I'm so tired and that makes it all worse,
because I wish you were here holding me ever so close.
Chasing away all the loneliness and the frights
that haunt my sleep and even scare me in drifting
while awake giving me the coldest scariest shivers.
Just one of those things I need to share with you
so it will make sense and you can understand that malfunction.
I just need you here to help avert these tired tears,
telling you that I love you and helping you is
a great service to me too because I feel loved
and calm when I'm showing and giving you all of my love.

Tired tears will most likely strike when
my head hits the pillow missing you,
my heart aching to feel your arms around me in comfort,
giving strength and peace to each other in
warmth and love mutually shared in respect and honor.
Come hold me my love and help prevent these tired tears,
you are everything I want and hold dear.
