Goodnight to remember

"...before you went to bed, before I caught the train..."

“…before you went to bed, before I caught the train…”

One night…
Before you went to bed, before I caught the train
You slipped inside my hopeless head
And switched me on again

That night…
Before you went to bed, before I caught the train
You stoked the embers so long dead
Rekindling the flame

Last night…
Before you went to bed, before I caught the train
I needed every word you said
To numb the rising pain

I dream…
Before you went to bed, before I caught that train
I tell you how much I love you
Before you catch your plane

Tonight…
Before you go to bed, don’t dwell upon your pain
Just know how much you are adored
By one whose life you saved
