Sometimes I wake up crying at night

I look around and all I see is nothing.

Your never here but you're always around.

I never see you but you hear all that I say.

I cant help the pain or the tears

But I know I'll see you someday.

In one way I want that someday to be soon,

Yet the other part of me wants it to be years away.

I know when I go I'll have questions answered.

Yet I know that also when I go more questions will come to surface.

I pray everyday for your safekeeping,

And for the nights when I can sleep through it all.
