A Love So Deep, I Can Not Sleep

A love so deep, I can not sleep.

Forever awake in a bliss, endless dream

I guess my thoughts are yours to keep.

 

Alone again, I tried counting sheep

But even in the dark empty you brightly gleam

A love so deep, I can not sleep

 

Even as I make my fearful leap,

I see you, in the peaceful stream.

I guess my thoughts are yours to keep

 

It’s been so long I can’t help but weep

And at the morning light, I all but scream

A love so deep, I can not sleep

 

My peace of mind is what you reap

Such a beautiful image, you unfairly redeem.

I guess my thoughts are yours to keep

 

Until nothing remains old Father Time begins to sweep,

My tired eyes will finally close but for one little theme,

I have a love so deep, I can not sleep.

I guess my heart is only yours to keep
