Tonight in my room, when I couldn't sleep

I left my warm bed and out I did creep.

The soft breeze was cool, the stars twinkled bright,

I stood on your doorstep at twelve in the night.

I stood there in silence and let the clock spin,

I just longed to stand there,

To be where you'd been.

I stayed there for hours, sweet thoughts filled my head, 

Then I walked from your doorstep and went back to bed. 

My mind is at peace, the stars are now dim,

I just longed to stand there to be where you'd been. - LM.
