 ramblings and things

Acres Wide

Come sleep with me she said
Bring some warmth to my bed
That seems to spread acres wide
Now that it's empty on his side

Just for a while hold me tight
Shorten just one endless night
So full of hours that I have wept
Until exhausted and finally slept

There's been no word since that day
He rang and said he was going away
No longer needed in his life
Just one more abandoned wife

Oh I can live and will survive
Already starting to become alive
But for just those lonely sheets
Where our love was once complete

Give me this one night as a friend
Help me bring grief towards end
Oh please tell me you will stay
Please don't yet be on your way

So I held her there as she wept
Held her there until she slept
Then slipped away as first light
Broke the power of that night

Come sleep with me she'd said
Bring some warmth to my bed
Which hadn't seemed to her so wide
For the time I'd spent on his old side
