Aside

Awake

I’m laying here
Tossing and turning
Waiting for a day
That they say will come

I’m wondering
I’m replaying
I want to know
But I’m not sure I do

While they slumber
I lay awake
I want so badly to move on
I wonder if they even know

I’ll close my eyes
I’ll close my hurt heart
I’ll wait for sleep
I’ll wait for peace
