Endless nights

Every night starts out the same
That restlessness that belies sleep
Only to lay in the dark, mind alive
Thinking of the things I want to keep.

Family can never be replaced again
Trying to keep them safe and protected
Knowing that some things I can manage
And at times help will be rejected.

Friends are important to have also
Whether they always see eye to eye
Some will be a shared connection
Others will just want to say goodbye.

Yet thoughts will linger for hours
They will dance around in my head
Knowing how much could be shared
Black as night and I still see red.

    You are you and I am me and looks like from the tone of this some of our nights are the same. Great poem with lots to think about. You know I am here if you need to talk always.

  3. Wonderful style and such an arc to your soul~thanks dear friend ~`Deborah
