Poetry

As I watch

As I watch

As I watch you drive away
Far away from me
I am filled with sorrow and pain
I know you will come back to my open arms
But I still miss you so
I wait for the day we can be together at last
And not have to say good-bye for a month at a time
I want to kiss you good-bye in the morning
And know you will be back that same day
I sit here waiting patiently for your call
Just so I can say, "I love you," and hear you say it too
You're the one I've been waiting for all my life
And I wait anxiously for the day when I will be yours forever
Please hurry back, my love
For my heart aches so when you are not here
I'll love you for all eternity
You are my knight in shining armor
You are my United States Marine
