Beyond These Walls

I lay here helplessly on my pillow
The silence is loud, the lights are low
No trace of my love to touch me in places
Where only she knows and where my spot is
I cannot wait to be at home
This is just a house when I'm alone
Yet don't fret, contented I'll remain
Until the distance fades and she comes home again

Beyond these these walls far away, yet so close
Is my only love, the girl I love most
Her kiss still lingers on my cold lips
That awaits the warmth of her tender kiss
Although there are days i can't understand her
Her Individuality makes my heart ponder
Yet somehow she has my constant attention
And she reassures me that I am still the one

So I'll wait for her to make it home again
When she comes to let all her love flow
I'll forever cherish the times we spend
Whether between or beyond these wall, I won't let her go
