I Heard You Crying in Your Sleep

I heard you crying in your sleep
But I was fast awake.
How long and lonely was that night
As my heart began to break,

And as I heard you weeping so
It was finally clear to see,
That I was more in love with you
Than you ever were with me.

But that's the way it is with love,
It's not a perfect thing--
And even the most lovely song
Can be difficult to sing.

What happened to my sweetheart?
She is no more fast asleep;
Chasing butterflies and rainbows,
She has no more need to weep.

WOW! This is so true. It has been said - that in Love - one person always loves more than the other. Thanks for sharing this with us... Lucilla

Thank you Paul. To know me is to know I have a great capacity for love; people, animals, whatever. But true love, that magical mystery that makes men sing and think of spring...ah, that's worth waiting for. Thanks again, Paul. I wonder, though. Does one have to lose love to really appreciate it?...mel

Hi Mel, WOW...WOW... I know your poem's short and all.... However, this reminds me, of a moment in my past life. I would cry every night, I never shared my tears, with my x- fiance. Anyway, one day, he turned around, and sang the same song with me. I thank him...That's all.... Your poem's amazing... heartfelt, and understood.....xox~ Linda

P.S. Brevity is the soul of wit. Short and sweet, that's me--not literally, I'm 6'0 tall :)

Thank you Linda. Such praise from you means a great deal. Why any guy would give you cause to cry, I don't know. I'm a guy, and I don't understand them. Now you know why I didn't want my daughter to get married, but she did...damn! I have an extra tissue if you need it :) Peace and love...xox....mel

Hi Tim. Yeah, it's the wound that doesn't heal. Love! Anyway, I'm glad you came by to read and comment. It's nice to know that are some--like you, who will read this and feel the pain. Only after tasting bitter food does white bread make you smile...mel

Also, your avatar looks like a panda with some blue thing in its mouth. I may need therapy :)

Ah heck. I didn't mean to make you cry; but I'm glad you did. This write will appeal only to the romantics out there--like you. Thanks Jan, for reading this simple write, and for getting it :) Love and hugs, my dear...mel
