I am fighting sleep only for the chance
to hear your voice.
Call you at 2 a.m. just to make sure
I’m still in your dreams
Drink a margarita for me please
Make it extra strong —
These days, we need the strength.
I go out to the woods
to seek my transcendalist side
Decide to write you something spectacular
And I wonder what you’ll make of that.
You tell me it’s time to think
but my thoughts are nothing new
Put on your smile for me –
and don’t you worry –
in time, this rest will be over.
