After Midnight

by Tony P

It is now some time right after midnight
Not quite dawn because I still see the stars
As I lay in my bed looking thru the skylight
I see Andromeda and you instantly come to mind

A vision of loveliness who is very far from me
Wanting you here lying beside me
But on this night it is not to be
I've tried sleeping but I only toss and turn

I clutch my pillow tight and whisper your name
Hoping that the slight breeze will carry my voice
To where every you might be causing a smile
And the knowledge that I'm lonely cause you're not here

Soft music in the background helps to easy my yearning
Though it can't replace this emptiness that I feel
But the sound of the sax reminds me of a time just a few hours ago
When you were here and I knew you couldn't stay

I know I should be sleeping but when I fall asleep
My dreams of you become vivid and intense
Causing aching in private places I needed mention
Your fragrances on my pillow aren't helping me either

I can hear the ticking of the clock though it is digital
Senses all aroused causing this storming
Looking at the clock its well after midnight
Not quite dawn because I still see the stars
