night terrors

Between the middle of the night and very early morning, I woke up.
I notice the first bird's song, reminding me of the new day.
If only I knew why I woke up with an agitated mind.

Is my heavy mind running towards you?
Are my thoughts busy soothing your dream?
And who is there to calm my racing heart and my dancing thoughts?

The rising sun shines through the cracks in the blinds
Birds and toads sing in duets, for my ears only
I close my eyes and count to ten, again and again.

I'm in need of sleep to free my mind of these borrowed emotions
Will I ever truly see the sky painted in the morning shades?
Breathing in and breathing out becomes my most important chore.

And as I drift off into the land of fantasies
I find myself in your safe and warm arms
This should be my piece of eternal peace.

But every day
Between the middle of the night and very early morning, I wake up...
