As sunshine filters through the shades
I rise to meet the day
Trying to forget the dreams
I fought to chase away

Though the daylight hours seem to drag
Night soon begins to fall
And I find myself alone again
Facing midnights call

With no one laying at my side
To keep the fears at bay
Or in whom I can confide
Why did you go away?

No one ever told me
The pain would be this bad
But the thought that somebody else is loving you
Is what makes me really sad

Are you still frightened of the thunder
And to sleep without the light
Do you think of me I wonder
Now you have his arms to hold you tight?

My soul is torn wide open
My world is ripped apart
All of my dreams lie broken
Beside my aching heart....

I can feel your broken heart here, dear John, welcome to PIP.

Well written piece. Even through the pain love lives.

Love,
Margherita

Thanks Margherita, as an eternal optomist I also believe that love will continue to shine through, I have healed and will no doubt suffer damage again in the future but I really believe it is the daily trials we endure which sparks our creativity....
