Just Thinking: A Song I Wrote

There was a friend I had many years ago who died much too early, and my only recourse was writing.

It was a lovely song, and a fellow friend put it to music.

Just thinking about it.

Coffee At Night

I can wake up in the morning
but then fall back asleep.
My heavy eyes and heavy heart
are just too much for me to keep.
These purple sheets we bought together

hold all my tears.

I wait until the darkness falls so all my memories disappear

 

I put the coffee on at night
so I can stay awake.
I just donʼt know how many more silent days I can take.
I look up at the stars
waiting for the coffee to brew. But baby all the stars are blurred and all I can see is you.

 

I still sleep through the days the skies just arenʼt as clear.

I think I see your ghost,

and I pretend that youʼre still near. I envy the clouds in Heaven which break

over my head.

I search for your footprints but find the raindrops instead.

 

The pouring rain is much too deep. So I close my eyes
And fall back into sleep.

 

But Iʼll put the coffee on at night so I can stay awake.
I just donʼt know how many more silent days I can take.
I look up at the stars
waiting for the coffee to brew.

But baby all the stars are blurred

and all I can see is you.

    I am holding our hand, I can’t think of anything because… Of your smile… and when I look at your smile I smile😃
    But are so bright no one can hid from your eyes
