Every morning I see your face,
And for that fleeting second I'm in a different place,
A place where we smiled, laughed, and talked,
A place where we could hold hands wherever we walked,
I'm reminded of this each and every day.
Then the sleep clears and it's all blown away.Realization sets in and I'm all alone.
I quickly have to check my phone
In case you've called or sent me a text.
Then it hits harder as what come next
Is the empty screen with your smiling face
And the emptiness of this forsaken place.
I wither up inside as all my hopes disappear
And the burn in my heart really starts to sear. I sink back in my bed and think of you
And wonder if there's anything I can do.
I'm knocked back every time I try to get through.
