Waking Requiem

There is a space,
After I wake up,
But before I open my eyes

I see you there.

But if I stay there,
If I linger too long,
The reach of sleep
Will drag me back
And you will disappear.

But I will try anyway.
I’ll stay as long as I can,
Fight off oblivion’s grasp,
For a few moments with you.

I will do this willingly,
For eternity if I could,
To avoid opening my eyes

And not seeing you here.
