My Sweet Husband
My sweet husband of mine
I awake every morning
to find that you are still not near me.
I look around wondering
" how long can this go on?"
I miss your touch
Your hand in mine
As I make your coffee for the morning.
I listen to the house and it is quiet
as the boys lay sleeping.
Even the wind lies quiet
As i slip out of bed
to another long day.
but then i remember the promises we share.
The dreams we have dreamed
And that is when I relieze why we do this day in
and day out.
I am very proud of you
and though I may shed tears of loneliness now
tommorrow will be a day that I will shed tears of joy.
The day when you will return to my dull little world.
to bring your light back to my heart
And make me whole once more.
