Sleep By My Side Again
Author: Clive B Ringshall


While sleeping I hear your voice,
Did you call my name or send a thought?
I awake to see your no longer there,
Im thinking of you night and day,
Cannot move forwards,
When I know we are not through,
I see you need a friend,
This shows me your love was never there,
You moved on easy left me standing,
I told you once I left you standing,
But Id wait till your love could start,
To force you to say those words,
Id dreamed you would,
I never wanted said until you were ready,
And youd mean them when said,
Then one day in that fateful December,
You said all three while on the phone,
I called you back yes I said them,
You told me with a smile,
At last I heard the words Id only dreamt you say,
At last I started to relax we would not part one day,
Then only weeks later you ended it all,
I dont love you, but I love my friend,
Ever been dumped before,
It hurts every day inside,
My love was true,
Never would it waver,
Now Im lost,
In a sea with no guidance for a map,
I wake every night hoping to sleep,
When you laid next to me through the night,
I would sleep till the new daybreak,
Now I wish everyday would pass,
Quicker than the last,
Still waiting for you to come back to my side,
Lay next to me once more,
I Love You.

This poem reminded me of a poem I once wrote about two lovers who were only known to each other by the moon. This poem that you've written is absolutely extraordinary! It really got a bit a depth and captured the feel of it all for the reader. Great job!
