My eyes are still open,
The mind still alert,
My body’s sluggish feeling like dirt
But yet I am up tonight this time love one.
 
There are so many dreams to dream
So much sleep to capture this time
But instead I am up with you I find
Dreams put on hold for right now.
 
The darkness seems longer than ever
The time growing old and older
And time seems restless forever
I am here sleepless with just thoughts
Inside of my head
Sleepless tonight and up with you.  July 2004

Was up one night and couldn’t sleep so I wrote
