I Sleep To Be Closer To You

Hey beautiful, I saw you today
But didn't bother to call
For what could I say
After all this time away
Except that I miss you very much
And not a day passes by
Without your smile on my mind

So I'm here again, in the early hours,
Resorting to words
These empty symbols I can't seem to fill in
Without your blessing
As if every line and simple rhyme
Is your soul's gift to my impoverished heart
Long ago claimed by your wonderful name

But when dreams finally come
I'm amazed at the feeling when I see you
Sometimes it's too much
And I wake suddenly to an indifferent world
Cut off from your touch
A kind of dying, each time I lose you
To the callousness of dawn
