I lie In bed at night and pray, that you will think of me. I cry until my eyelids close, and dream-eternity. I wake to sunlight on my face, for a moment I forget. Then a cloud passes by, and I realize, this is it. I carry on throughout the day, feigning joy, and feeling pain. I long to gaze upon your face, and share a smile, an embrace. The day is drawing to an end, and still I think of you. I try to relax, yet in my mind, I wonder, what to do. So now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. And should you chance to think of me, know that I love you-eternally.

Yeah I'm reading up your works, wow, you are a very talented poet. Alex you really do have a talent. A couple of my works are now pending, but there are other poems I write in my poem journal. Those poems are undecided if I want them in teenink. If you have any sugestions, please let me know. I'm in a state of limbo on that.
