What Did You Do To Me Last Night

the sun was sinking and shadows growing 
around me 
sleepless nights have become my constant companion 
my eyes burn as I wait for him 
restless and sad
hoping for peace to find me soon 
deep in my solitude keeping my heart awake all night 
finally the sandman sprinkled magic in my eyes 
images came rushing in 
I found you standing there 
with your special smile and sparkling eyes 
waiting for me 
filling me with your warmth 
if I had never dreamt 
I would have never known
the awe and wonder before me 
emotions stir these late nights
I feel young and loved 
behind a blanket of visions 
a memory brings forth a tear 
as the new day arrives 
bright full of hope and relief 
what did you do to me last night

Contest: last night
