Stay Awake

Just so quiet

Here tonight

As you sleep softly

By my side

So calm and

Innocent

Safe and

Understood

Although alas

I cannot sleep

Because for

The first time

In a long time

I’m with a person

For whom

I want to

Stay awake;

Just so I can

Watch over

To make sure

That I can

Look after you.
