I don't want to sleep
I don't want to dream
My dreams are all of you
Tied up in your touch
Lost in the love
That I wish was real
I feel you too well
Hear your voice too clear
See the light in your eyes
As I play with your hair
I hold you tight
I won't let you go
But it always ends the same
And I wake up in tears

Yes, this is a relatable feeling. One of my close friends is on deployment right now.
Great job conveying this!
