Because I Couldn’t Sleep

A guttural reaction
From hearing your name
Like a jerk to the knee
The rain poured in an instant -
Crying the tears I no longer shed.

The twitch in my face
When I’m hearing our song
The pang of old heartache
Your rich baritone

Old photos in boxes
All turned into ash
Rewind in my head
A silent movie
For a love lost and dead

The smile that I wear
When we talk about you
And where you are now
And where I will be
Replaying ghost memories
Of a past symphony

Thoughts from A Softer World
