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.
