you cannot find

I'm hoping it's not a nightmare

Wrong, but it turned out that
I was right about everything
But you.

Don't lie to me.
Tell me, where did you sleep,
Whose pillow did you rest upon
Last night?

To sleep the sleep of God
But Heaven left my side for Hell

A sunshine friend
Disappears in darkness
Pops back once the lights are on in
Your life.

For the strength to move on…
But the things that kept me going
Are late.
