Hate Sleeping Alone

Days are fine but nights can get too much

After a lifetime by myself,

I appreciate having someone else

But our pillows should only be strangers to anyone other than us

I love the attention and phone calls but hate love because it forms routine

Before you my voice was enough but now I need you as a lullaby

I understand you and the plans you have but don’t be gone too long

I celebrate the ambition but remember you are no longer alone

Don’t be so quick with the goodbyes

Chase your dreams and I will chase mine

Just remember I didn’t sign up for sleeping alone
