Still Night
by Irving J Schulman

        As I lay there, sleeping soundly
            I felt a sudden chill,
        I rolled over to hold you close
          But, as before, you were gone.
             The night is still.

      I turned back over, closing my eyes
  Only to hope I would awaken from my dream,
       But things weren't any different
           For again, I awake crying.
               Again, I am empty.

         Every night I dream this dream
        And every night it ends the same.
         Tonight will be the last time.
Tonight will be the last time I turn to hold you
               And find you gone
            Tonight,I will be strong.

         As I lay there sleeping soundly
            I felt a sudden chill,
         I rolled over to hold you close
               No. I am strong.
               I close my eyes.
              The night is still.
