I lay alone in bed at night
Your side an empty lonely sight.
I close my eyes and roll onto my back
And dream of you- asleep upon your rack.
I know the hours must be long,
And longer now that you are gone.
I wonder what you do all day,
If you were here what would I say?
I love you. I need you.
You’re part of everything I do.
I see your face in everyone I meet,
In our kids, oh so sweet.
I know that you’ll come back to me,
But every day till then feels like eternity.
I still cry myself to sleep at night, and
sometimes in the day,
But you should know in every way-
I could not ever be more proud that I am
My sailor, my protector, my partner, my
I long to hold you in my arms, for just
I pray these weeks fly by, till I see you
again, and I can say…
I love you. Always.
