SOMEONE NEW

I could smell you on my pillow

All last night

I can almost hear you smiling

In the tiny light

I wasn’t so afraid then

To lay back and close my eyes

Almost like it was okay to sleep

As long as we were fine

With each dream in my head

I thought of losing you

As each nightmare came and went

The sky grew blue

And I couldn’t see the stars above me

But I just knew that they were there

And I couldn’t feel you love me

Still I was sure you cared

And I wondered what you were thinking

Were your eyes closed so you could see

If you thought of me at all last night

I hope I was all you could believe

Thank you for coming to my life

When it was dark

And thank you for giving me a reason

To listen to my heart
