Awake

I wake up every night and tremble with the stars.

Then I hear them breathing and close my eyes – everything is alright.

Before the sunshine, with the dawn, we start another day.

You make some coffee and she smiles – my family is fine.

I think about the loss, I pray for them, and all I want is health.

I feel my time is running out and my youth will vanish. So so vain.

But then you two laugh and someone calls again.

And I let my worries slip away just like some morning air.
