Wait, I’m awake
But I’m falling even faster
Falling faster into sleep
Into deep dark sleep.
When I dream, I hope it’s something
Something that is you
All I dream of is you.
When I sleep, I hope I dream
Because when I dream it’s you.
1, 2…
I’m falling faster, so quiet
I can hear you breathing
You’re already sleeping
I hope your dreaming.
I kiss your lips, and fade away
Till the morning, when I see you again
1, 2, 3… 3, 3, 3….

We can totally feel the narrator ( I don't know if you talk about you or not ) falling asleep and I really relate to this poem. Well done !
