Alone in my room

Here alone in my room
I lay on my bed
thinking of you
wondering why you are not here
if I shut my eyes
blocking out the world
and will it enough
would you appear
there in the doorway
with just that look
and that smile
if I offer my hand
would you accept it
coming to join me
here on my bed
should I open my eyes
you would be gone
lost in sweet darkness
so I remain here
waiting for the dreams
that might bring me
to where you wait for me
