there's a hole in my heart tonight
where you should be
you're busy dreaming right now-
still I wait expectantly...
I wait for the phone
I wait for your voice
and the smile on your lips at mine
I need to know "how was your day?"
I want to make it better if "not so great."
the time between
when I can see you again and now
holds its breath
as we ooze along impatiently
I just need to hear your voice
as you wrap your arms around me
and make it safe to breathe again,
for I find comfort in your embrace...
without you here there is
such a gap beside me
where you belong...
don't hesitate too long to fill it
