For My Love, For My Sailor:

For My Love, For My Sailor:

As I said goodbye to you, not knowing what to expect.
They walked by and said it was time to go,and I wrapped my arms tighter around your neck.
The tears they came with such pain and hurt.
I just couldn't contain them, I knew this was your work.
I stood there and waved as your boat drifted by.
My heart ached so bad. I felt as part of me had died.
Why were you leaving me?
I knew,but just couldn't accept.
I will be alone tomorrow, and the next, and the next.
The days go by slower when your not around.
When I feel I can't take it I look up to the clouds.
I pray for your safety, and the other's as well.
I know God is watching over you and this really isn't hell.....
I WILL make it through this, I'm just waiting for the time.
When I can hug you and kiss you and claim you again as mine.
