Can love sustain us? The answer...a resounding YES!


I lie awake
Forcing my eyes to remain closed
But sleep evades me anyway
In the stillness of the night
I hear a train whistle in the distance
Such a lonely sound in the night

My mind keeps going back
Through my life
Times of joy and pain
Loss and gain
But every thought leads me back to you

I wonder if you are sleeping
Or do you, like me, find it impossible
To give in to the darkness
Do you long to touch?
For just the touch of your hand on mine
Would be enough to find
peace in the night

I know if I could only hear
The sound of you breathing
Softly, beside me…sleep would come
For the closeness of you brings peace
The knowledge that my love is near
me brings serenity
To have your scent
fill my nostrils as I breathe
Is truly a wondrous thing
For this is my heart’s desire

So, for now, sleep is elusive
Only the thought of you sustains me
For your love is the elixir
That makes my heart beat
My Darling, my life, my love
