eye grows weary
Day into night, night into day
faithful comrade by my bedside
Our bodies interlocked in numb embrace
Silence echoes loud and strong
Like a familiar conversation
relationship still going strong
It will never leave my side
friend and lover it's been
A rock-solid surety through trying times
The din of momentary company breaks us apart
But its hungry arms reach for me again
until they find my incomplete soul
Drawing me near, pulling me close,
me in bittersweet companionship.
