If I were to open my eyes…
Would you still be there in the morning?
When I turn to glance at the clock…
Will your form disappear into the past?

I feel like your vanishing before my eyes
Fading away into the shadows
And I can't reach out to save you,
I can't even see you anymore.

I just wanted to tell you I'm sorry.
Have I lost my sight or have you lost your substance?
You mean so much to me…
But I can feel you slipping through my fingers like sand.

You are the first warmth I have found in a long time,
I want you to linger with me here
And I want to live the impossible dream
But you seem to be just that; a fantasy.

When I turn my back to work,
Will you become a shadow of a monster?
When I wake up early from a nightmare,
Will you be there to comfort me or are you part of the dream?

I don't want a handsome prince;
just a friend I can share my life with.
Can I trust you not to be
Just another of my dark memories?
Its difficult sorting things out.

I really enjoyed this, it really draws out the feeling in the fear of losing someone you love or care for. Very well written!
