I lie awake in bed each night
Wishing you were here with me.
Thinking of you every moment of the day,
Imagining how it could be.
Every night while I sleep,
My dreams are of you.
I only wish that some
Of these dreams could come true.
Every morning when I wake up,
You're the first thing on my mind.
Forever waiting to see you again,
And leave this loneliness behind.
During everything I do all day,
Thoughts of you run through my head,
Often causing tears to flow,
And I'm running out of tears to shed.
Every moment when I think of you,
My love for you grows stronger.
No matter how much I wish for time to pass,
It seems like the wait keeps getting longer.
Though I miss you more and more each day,
Every moment we're not together,
I love you more every moment as well.
And I'll always love you, forever.
