Drive Home Safe And That Will Be The Highlight Of My Day

Updated on December 2, 2010

I Will Be Waiting With Open Arms

As life gets busy so do we

Sometimes a husband and wife have to do things separately

She goes off to work and I am off and I get to stay home (the way I like it) lol

No truthfully I miss her with all my heart

We are fortunate to drive to work together most of the week

I am proud to say she is a better driver than me

When we have had a long day she is a trooper through and through

I get tired and fall off too sleep while she drives with a cautious eye

When we go to work I am refreshed then I drive so she can take an afternoon nap

Our ride is an hour and a half of driving mostly highway

We travel some one hundred and fifty miles a day

Careful to leave early enough so we are not late

Just in case unexpected traffic comes

We have to be happy from the start

It is not safe to drive angry or mad

Looking at a hostile face and sitting siliently is no picnic

I rather be hung by my fingertips on the clothes line outside to dry

Life is too short and everything we say and do does matter

The time we spend together is special and it will always be that way

If we are talking, quietly napping, or listening to the radio

They are all favorites and I can't choose one I woudn't do

As long as I get to spend it with that fine wife of mine

Who will be home soon and then we will soon call it a day

We both have to work to earn an honest living

To pay the bills and keep the roof from falling in

This seems like an endless cycle of trying to make ends meet

If we can take the best of times and the worst of times and divide by two

We have half the money and twice the love

I know in the long run it will all work out

So no need to pout when things aren't coming together

We have everything we have ever wanted as long as we hold each other

I look into your eyes  that I have seen so many times before

One that makes your lips pucker

For the man that you adore

I may not be rich or famous

But I can see happiness for a lifetime

With a wonderful wife like you

      Oops - pressed "post" twice and it finally did - twice. So I'll just add a little magic dust for good measure here after deleting the duplication!

      Just beautiful, DO. You're such a romantic knight in shining armor. Think of yourself that way and sweep your princess off her feet with gallantry and love. Have a special "something" to refresh her when she walks in! - Whatever her favorite beverage is, served especially nicely - and maybe a bite of a goodie to complement it! Bow deeply from the waist, with a white napkin over one arm as you present it to her.
