Lonely Tonight

I cower in the corner of my bed
Holding on tight like a child to the mother
As loneliness engulfs my besieged soul

Fond memories of you cast me in shadows unending
Lost in unrelenting thought, trapped in my own mind
I begin to recount the moments we had
Replaying minute by minute again and again and …

I turn, I twist, I curl but without you, this bed is way too big and tonight is way too cold
I miss you, I long for you like water in the midday heat
Everything seems to remind me of you

I look at the clock hoping it will run faster so you can come back home
Come back home to me
But time seems to have its own mind tonight

I miss your touch and that embrace; as you hold me like no other
I miss that look in your eyes, that look that makes me shy
I miss the talk, the laughter, the silence and, the awkward moments too
And oh! Your cooking Hmmm! I miss that too (How could I forget)
Oh Yeah! even the arguments; I miss them too especially when I am right

And even though you are not coming home again,
In my heart you will always have a home
But that still makes me lonely tonight
