Lying awake in the middle of the night

Wishing, hoping, praying thoughts of you would take flight

I’m so tired but so wired, sleep evades me

When I do sleep it isn’t deep, tossing and turning because my chest is burning

They say only time heals but I feel like without you time halts

Eventually I’ll get better but for know my heart and soul are fetter
