Wake Up

Wake Up

What do you think about,
when you wake up?
Do you think about,
the step you will take
When you get out of bed?
Did you think about yesterday?
You wish you did something else instead.
Those words you never got to say.
You will try to tell them anyway.

If all the moments do not count.
Will you try to take them back?

In a way it may be too late you lost your day.
You let it all bundle in layers and stacks.
Without wondering,
if there will ever be a tomorrow.
Not realizing yesterday is gone.
Waking up to an empty shell,
Going off the deep end.
Living life like "oh well","oh well!"
With you, it's just another morning.
Not knowing how your day will begin.
Thinking I don't want to lose a moment,
With the one I love.

I want to wake up with a smile again.
Sleeping with a prayer to him above.
Always giving my day a very good end,
To wake up with so much love.

    Nathan, dear I hear where you are coming from. It is HARD 2 keep up with them smiles in the morning. Especially when you got a man giving you every thing all night. Leave it to that special person to want to satisfy a non going smile. Love,..p.d.

    it is a very longing emotion if you feel that you have lost even one moment with the one you love so dearly. and when it comes to you the moments you awake, thats where it gets really deep. becuase its also in your dreams, where your reality lives in unconcious mind, which is sometimes in other words, your spirit trying to tell you something, or remind you.and its okey, Irma, you don't have to tell anyone the truth about your 'make believe'.but your only 36, and u got divorced yrs ago?-alway
