Prose - Living Apart From My Heart

Source

I miss you
As soon as we part
Because with you
I leave my heart

Until we meet again

When I arrive
You run to me
Floating on your love
For your Daddy

Until I leave again

Do you think about me
As I do you?
Do you wonder what I do?
I wonder about you too

Until we meet again

You wear feathers
And a smile
You sing songs
And dance for a while

Until I leave again

You live your life
While I wait
I go to work
And stay too late

Until we meet again

You ask me questions
And sometimes twice
Everything is so confusing
But you listen to my advice

Until I leave again

Then I wonder
Will she remember
How happy she makes me
And the things I said to her?

Until we meet again

We have a simple lunch
Just she and I
With nothing but birds
Singing in the sky

Until I leave again

I sleep in another house
With her face in my mind's sight
I wonder if she’s scared
Without Daddy there in the night

Until I arrive again

I say I’m sorry
It’s hard to tell her why
She forgives me
And tells me she knows I try

Until I leave again

Sometimes I cry
Because it makes me upset
I try not to think about it
But the tears never forget

Until I arrive again

One day you’ll be grown
And I’ll be in the twilight
I hope you will know
How you brightened my night

Until I leave again

yes, "... know?" I've been gone for over a month, so my readings are all fouled up--getting some newer than others, and have already commented on a couple that go to me about your love for your children. There's nothing like it ..."you know?" heartbeats.....I can feel them

@Teylina - Loving your children is something that should be a natural flow from your heart. It should be easy and I am proud to display it...
