Waking Up with a Broken Heart

When you open your eyes 
And the image is gone 
When you reach out your hands
Just so you can hold on 
 
He was only a dream
Sent to break down your walls
You thought you were okay
Til the Sandman made calls
 
Now you can’t shake the touch 
Of his fingers on yours 
And you can’t erase memories 
Or close all those doors 
 
So the best you can do 
Is to let your eyes close 
And wait til dreams bring you 
One more thorn-wrapped rose
