Loneliness and Yearning

©1992 Jeffrey Hellman





A night we filled with music

Our words avoided love

Recipes, a southern breeze

Literacy and family trees


Sleep and I were side by side

But we never did agree

My mind was racing with my heart

Around a track as wide as the sea


Loneliness and yearning -chorus-

Defenses falling down

I've come to you my love to prove

And turn your heart around


The thoughts I had were crazy

My thoughts are crazy still

No longer will they go away

Nor will my heart be still


At Night now as I lay down

And beckon unto sleep

A face appears before me

Waking emotions that run deep
