I watch as morning comes,
the light slowly chasing the shadows into hiding
until the sun sleeps once more.
And yet I myself cannot close my eyes,
for sleep would not find me.
Visions keep me as dreams do not hold me,
of moments spent in his presence
fill my mind’s eye.
I must find my way to his side.
It is a painful process I must go through
to be free of the chains that hold me down,
but I will do it.
I will suffer more to be where he exists.
