Not Just A Memory

I stay awake late at night

wishing you are by my side.

I hope that you are coming home soon.

Tomorrow isn’t soon enough.

This waiting is getting tough. 

I need you here next to me.

How hard should it be to sleep?

So lonely, I am crashing down.

My face is stuck in a frown.

All I need is to see your face.

Then I think of all the things

you would surely be saying.

A smile creeps up on my face

I remember where your love is placed.

No longer does my heart feel sad.

No matter where you are, I’m glad,

when knowing that you’re not just a memory. 

You’re always here with me. 

Lingering Hope

You got me wrapped around your finger.

Baby you say that I got you too,

but I know that’s not true.

I see your constant wondering eyes.

I know your looking for your next fantasy.

The mental picture you can use to self please.

I going to untangle myself from your grasp.

Im done tagging along behind you.

Im going to find a love that will last

and not a love that will blind you.

You thought you had me wrapped your finger

and now I’m not even around to linger.
