Day by day, I wake alone, in a cold and empty bed,
Day by day, thoughts of you, keep running through my head.
I wake and wish this day would be the one I see your smile
I sit and wait to see your face, I'm living in denial.

Because I know that there's no way that I'll see you today,
And as the sun begins to set, my hopes will slip away.
As darkness covers this cruel world, my heart grows darker too,
And I will whisper to the night how much I long for you.

The stars begin to twinkle, lighting up the sky above,
But the only light I long to see is the light of your love.
I pray tomorrow is that day that I'm holding you tight,
As in my cold and empty bed, I stare alone into the night.

    when I was jailed for standing alone I too knew this you, suddenness of its sadness I still to this day recall the singleness of my tear from the fear of it being forever. may tomorrow arrive and change the light seen only in the darkest hour guide you back to one him. oh yah be sure he can hear your whisper when the time is near.

    Agree with the good review of Rishit Desai.With these kind of rhymed quatrains (as opposed to free verse) you
    need to take a lot of care with line length and syllablic balance.So a good write that could be better. (Report) Reply

    A very nice poem. Apart from the obvious rhymes, the poem has a good rhythm. However the rhythm is lost is last stanza at 2 places. The second part of the second line (maybe love needs to be preceded by a single syllable adjective) . The second part of the last line has an extra syllable/word. (maybe 'alone' needs to be deleted) . (Report) Reply
