Teasing Fate

When I lay in bed alone at night
Turning from side to side
The sleep won’t come
No matter how I plea
Because even in the darkness
You’re all I see

The blanket becomes your hand
The pillow turns into your chest
The hum of the wind
Feels like your breath
There is no more to be said

I’m hopeless without you
Yet I can’t live with you
Was it too soon
Or was it too late
Were we only teasing the fate

I can think of this all night
Until the first rays of sunshine
Then a new day makes me forget
But when the next night comes
I’m full of regret
