You said you would stay awake 
with me,
to hold my hand and comfort me.
You said I wouldn’t have to face it 
on my own because you are there 
for me, heart, body and soul.
One hundred percent, to the 
bitter end.
Maybe I should not chastise, 
my expectations are way too high.
It’s just that moment when I turn 
to you to speak and you are fast 
asleep, that my body mourns the 
loss of my ideal love.
For we are not in it together, no.
I’m where I’ve been many times 
before, facing worries on my own.
You’ve made the right noises at 
the right times, and you’ve done 
your best, you should be proud.
But from now on, I can see I’m 
on my own because you’re 
asleep and I’m awake.
Yes I’m awake because 
I’m troubled about my fate 
and it’s clear to see you are 
not otherwise sleeping you 
would not.
Instead you would be still awake 
with me.
