The Wife Who Waited (poem)

Updated on July 12, 2015

They sent him home with ribbons and parades

This man who wore such valor on his chest

And all her fears were finally at rest

The wife who waited by the window shades


She always knew he was the very best

A man whose plans left small time for charades

And his love for her it never fades

The wife who waited teardrops marred here breast


The flowers in the garden have all changed

The songs of birds seemed different last spring

The wife who waited watches husband roam


Now who will fix a dream set so estranged

And who can teach young hearts again to sing

The wife who waited for her love at home
