Empty Bed

I toss and turn in my restless sleep
Haunted by dreams of times past
I reach for you in the darkness
But you're not there
And the emptiness of my bed wakes me
For the first few moments I'm disoriented
Then reality comes crashing down
You'll never sleep beside me again
You've moved on to someone else
I wish my heart was as empty as my bed
But it isn't, it still loves you
That hardly seems fair
You had no problem ending your feelings for me
Why can't I turn off my feelings for you
It is hours yet til morning
And I know sleep won't come again
I'll just lay here...alone
In my empty bed
