 once upon a time

As I close my eyes the freedom of sleep evades me
 I hear myself calling out your name.
I know In my mind I will be calling out to you,.
Wanting, needing to be held and comforted in your arms.
It seems only a moment since I held you and closed my eyes,
Yet I realize it was a long time ago. yet on these sleepless
nights when my eyes are wide closed your memory swirls
through my mind you are forever in my heart Margaret.
I wish I could close my heart as well as my eyes, but to deny you
would leave me torn apart. Your name, the closeness of you I
can never deny. I cannot  close my eyes, I need the joyfulness
of you swirling lazily past me. As i clasp you to my heart.
