i wrote this for my husband when he was deployed in iraq for 15 months, this was our first but far from our last deployment!

                                                                A LOVE SO FAR AWAY

How long he'd be gone is uncertain when he goes
He says he will come home and that's all that he knows
He promised he would be safe and write us all the time
Not shedding a tear although you just want to break down and cry
Here we sit in uncertainty for love so far away

Some days fly like as if they could soar
Others just drag with their endless chores
Some days aren't bad you hardly miss him a bit
Others seem like they could crush you with just the weight of his absence
Here we sit missing love so far away

The busy days and the sleepless nights
The longing for something as simple as his embrace
The loneliness and the worry the grief and the strife
The lack of connection although you talk every night
Here we sit longing for love so far away

The sacrifices they make and the pain that they endure
The impact on our child all because of this war
The moments that they miss, the memories we wont share
The guilt and the remorse for just not being there
How little do they understand but how much that they know
Here we are sit worrying for love so far away

The nights are lonely, vast  and cold
The bed so big and empty it  feels as though the space could swallow you whole
The loneliness, the concerns, the doubts, the fears,
Laying awake all night thinking, trying to hold back the tears
Got to be strong the rock for us both not just me but for him the most
Here we sit praying for love so far away

One day he will be home with us again
Safe and sound in our warm embrace
Our lips touching so tenderly so passionate it washing the distance away
To be in his arms again loved and secure
Here we still sit impatiently waiting for love so far away!
