The air all around me is heavy and dreary,
Been sat here for hours, I am feeling so weary,
The children so long have been tucked upÂ in bed,
The silence, so deafening, engulfing my head.
With nowhere to turn and no-one whom to speak,
A fear overwhelms me I may become weak,
I promise myself that I will remain strong,
This loneliness will pass. It will not last long.
A tear slowly travels from eyelash to nose,
I brush it away, butÂ its followed by those,
Tears which flow freely for no reason they fall,
I hate myself thinking these dark thoughts at all.
When I am alone, my logic mind flops,
I hear my heart pounding and will it to stop,
I just cannot care about things good and cheerful,
I share with my family and friends, just feel tearful.
The clock on the shelf ticks so loudly and steady,
Time hurries along, I must soon get ready,
My bed, cold and lonely, is waiting for me,
To come, rest my head, and dream sleepily.
Sleep will not happen, I’ll toss and I’ll turn,
My sadness will deepen, my mind will not learn,
That by feeling this way I do me no favour,
If I made more effort, more enjoyment would savour.
