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.
