I woke up so many times last night,
I felt such fear and I felt such fright,
My dreams they held a world of pain,
Please help before I go insane.
Sleep is the only time that I,
Can cling to life, no urge to die,
Please do not steal from me,
The only respite that I see.
I feel my tummy tied in knots,
My head spins with a million thoughts,
Not sure how much was a dream,
I woke myself with such a scream.
I tried to reach but couldn't grasp,
I was falling down and falling fast,
I willed myself to wake for good,
For at least that way I knew I could.
Grasp reality and let it go,
But now it seems I'll never know,
My bedsheets tell me it is true,
I had another dream of you.
