Wide Awake In the Middle Of the Night
On A Beach
Wide awake in the middle of the night
I lay here thinking of the good days
when I spent time with a friend on a beach
when we still were so young and innocent.
We thought our friendship would last
for years and decades to come
until we would both get old
and chase our grandchildren on the beach.
The thought of our friendship keeps me awake,
a friendship that we lost while we were busy living our lives
in separate worlds and in separate ways.
I still lay wide awake thinking of the good days
but in case I fall asleep tonight
please, wake me up when it's all over.
