Nighttime Love

And suddenly every day,
you await for her return.
The sky is no longer gray,
and you will no longer yearn
the love you lost long ago.
(But deep, deep inside you know
this love is unrequited)
She’s back, you are delighted!
Oh, what will you do today?
For her sake, you will now stay
up late, go to sleep later…
Just to spend more time with her.
“I love you” you wish to say…
“I love you” you wish to hear.
And now you wish to stay here.
You don’t want to go away.
A faraway land of dreams
isn’t good enough without her!
(Again, you fall through the seams
of reality… Wake up.)
