Restless Sleep

What can I do to make you stay?
Don't leave me alone on this awful day;

I fight back the tears as they start to flow;
'cause no matter what, you're still going to go;

Alone once again and no way to share;
the pain of my loss, the load which I bear;

Lord, hold me close within your embrace,
since nothing else fills this cold empty space;

In my heart is an ache so very deep;
each night I toss and turn, till at last ...
restless sleep.
