Four A.M.

by TiaDee

Where were you at four?? A.M.? This morning?
When I rolled over to tell you I love you
For the first time I was feeling it,
and you weren’t there for me to say it
Can you tell me how come you weren’t there at four??
When I decided I wanted to be totally yours
Everything I had been scared to say
awoke me from my sleep and I wanted to tell you
So I waited. And never heard the key in the door,
why weren’t you there at four??
I wanted to wrap my arms and legs around you
and tell you what was in my heart
I wanted to look in yours eyes,
and let you know you were it for me,
and lets not ever part
But you weren’t there at four??
When God spoke to me and awoke me from my sleep
when He told me that your love for me ran deep
So at that moment I didn’t hurt any more
and I wasn’t scared, or running from you
My wounds had healed and I was ready to do
what you wanted me to do
It all happened at four this morning,
when you weren’t there.

I went back to sleep at six
because you still weren’t there,
and I woke at nine with your breath in my ear.
And just like that the love was lost,
the wounds were back, and I let go of you.
Because I knew our four
wouldn’t come around anymore.
