Night And Day Blues

It should not be a sad thing,
                            To be a friend.
But I cry at night, on an empty pillow.
And every day I dream about you,
And see your face, in shadows.

It should not be a bad thing,
                            To be a friend.
But every night I dream about you.
And in the day, I cry without you,
And give myself to sorrow.

        It should not be so maddening
                             To be a friend.

Thank you Brian for commenting 🌷

It is a bit like singing a popular song, I suppose. Everyone knows the tune, they've either sung it themselves or heard it often, so there's no room for a bad rendition to go un-noticed. I'm glad it sounded correct.

Thank you Ghazala and Stephen for your lovely comments. 💕

Thanks also to everyone who has clicked 'Like' for this poem 💐

There's still quite a few poems to go in the 'unrequited love' theme before we reach the next theme - They each have their own unique features (for better or worse) so hopefully it won't be too boring. (I'll keep my fingers crossed (at least some of the time) 😬)
