As I turned out the light-
Asleep, you didn’t hear me,
My words were lost in the night.
My sighs joined your soft breathing
As you slumbered by my side-
Another chance of forgiveness
Would again be denied.
I tried to tell you this morning
That I didn’t mean what I said,
But you pouted and turned away-
I spoke to the back of your head.
I’ve searched my heart for comfort
And words to bring us both some peace,
But you will not let me say them,
And it’s causing us both grief.
As I toss and turn beside you
I have turned to God to pray
For a chance of asking forgiveness
And that you won’t just turn away.
I know the morning will soon be here
And I don’t want the brand new day
To bring more grief and misunderstanding
Like what we have suffered here today.
I am going to have to talk to you now,
As I have wanted to all day long-
For the longer we let this hurt go,
The harder it will be to get along.
So please remember now my Dear
That God wants us to be as one
And to never keep an argument going
After the setting of the sun.
