Sleeping through a tough night

You know that the night is tough When your heart feels distress Self-consolation is never enough And hence writes a poetess- "You know you can't sleep When you're awake in someone's mind anxiety, worry and feelings deep Leaving peace behind" How easy it would be if you could take me in your arms And lovingly assure thee of no impending harm My eyes won't shut They yearn to see you smile For, my mind knows that you're hurt, Every second is a trial My heart's beating for you, As i'm thinking of your plight The dark sky keeps me company While I sleep through this tough night.
