I toss and turn but there is no sleep to be found
Body is aching, exhausted but there is no rest
Working to make ends meet but the mind escapes
Am I here at a wrong time and at a wrong place?
I plough through scriptures but there’s no grace
I know a wise word or two but that won’t suffice
Been strong to hold my fort but it keeps crumbling down
Is the heart beating or is just an old clock that tick-tocks
Two paragraphs of melancholy won’t drown your joy.
What you don’t deny me and what you generously give
A few words of happiness and a hearty honest laugh
Much is made of wants & needs, a little bliss is just enough
There are distances but the heart still fondly reminisces
Mirrored images are closer than you think they are
Situations do change, the goodness in you remains same
Acquaintances are plenty but there is only one You.
Incredible and unbelievable may sound to those ears
Maybe be a bit too sweet for your taste and palate.
There are those that come to your life and leave in a haste
You’re the king of hearts and that’s where you always remain
