Help Me Make It Through The Night

By 2nd July 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

As I lay awake in bed
I squeeze my pillow tight
Through my tears I say out loud
Help me make it through the night

It’s been so long since I have slept
Every night I toss and turn
Whilst my baby’s far away
The pain inside me burns

Through the day I face the world
With a smile upon my face
But it’s so hard to be cheerful
When my baby’s in that place

People round me sympathise
But they don’t really understand
What it’s like to have your baby
At war in a far off land

I don’t care who’s right or wrong
Or what has been done so long before
I just want my baby home
Not fighting someone else’s war

Until my baby is home with me
I squeeze my pillow tight
Through my tears I’ll shout out loud
Help me make it through the night
