The early morning silence speaks to my soul.

It calms my heart and lets my mind wander back to a warmer time,


A time of love and light. But as the dawn draws near,

The night’s soft callings fade and take my sleepy hope with them.


As the horizon brightens, my heart, that was held close in sleep,

Stretches and yawns back to wakefulness.


A wakefulness to the reality of losing him again,

And the pain and longing is felt anew.


If only night’s magic and sleep’s

Fantasies could survive the cold light of dawn.
