Solo Sleeping

Without your beating heart next to mine I lie restless
I wake in cold sweats and I'm left feeling breathless
You think I'd be used to it by now, this change of pace
I'm starting to barely recognize this place
The time that goes by puts no distance between
me and my need for your comfort it seems
The cage your arms once created around me
a safe place, a home
A place I could trust and not feel alone
My soul only sleeps sound when you're next to me
So quickly I could slip into a dream
as I fell asleep to the beat of your beating heart
Now we lie apart
I still sleep...
But I wake every hour or two
Searching for the solace I once found in you
