Poetry

When you leave

This poem is for my soon to be fiancé PVT Hampton I'll love you for the rest of
our lives Together always in mind, body and spirit I think about you all the
time, Baby you blow my mind Come back soon I miss you darling

-=When you leave…

When you leave I crawl up in our bed

The nest that we have made

A place that stores our memories and our love

I lye there and think

What are you doing?

What are you thinking?

I start to cry

I hold my rabbit tight

The one thing that is closer to being with you

I see your picture

Crying myself to sleep

Eager for your presents

Wanting you to come back home

But I know there is a job to be done

I feel you soul embrace my body

Your strong arms that wrap around me

You nestle your head in my chest

I hear your voice wispier

“Shhhh!!!! Baby no tears, I’m here, you can rest now, I’ll never let you go”

At last the comfort I have been aching for

You look up at me and smile

I smile back to you

We laugh with complete happiness

You say “I’ll be home soon, be strong for me darling”

Benjamin you will feel the love in my heart

I will tell you we will never be apart

Feeling a gentle kiss on the forehead

You must have to go

I wake up to see the rising sun

To find a new day has begun

I pull the shades up

I look out the window

There stands a butterfly nesting in a rose

As beautiful as the life we have made

For now, you will come and go

But I will always know

Some day baby, you will be here to stay
