Absence

I don't like it when your side of the bed stays cold,


When your scent fades away and your days are untold,


When the laundry basket is hungry for some of your clothes,


When I can't move my feet in bed to tickle your toes,


I don't like it when I have to cook for one,


When I'm alone when I wake til the day is done,


When I don't awaken to your warm embrace,


When I'm not greeted home by your handsome face,


I even don't like it when the seat stays down,


When I don't get to gaze into your eyes so brown,


When I don't have to fight for the sheets all night,


When I don't have you to help me figure out what's right,


I don't like it when you're just not by my side,


When my heart feels like it's been opened wide,


When you're not right here for my lips to kiss,


These are some of the things about you that I miss. 


 


I wrote this about my husband. He's only been at Basic for 4 days but knowing I won't see him for another 10 weeks (they are in the reception phase, basic doesn't start for a week) is killing me.
