Working Late At Night

Updated on October 2, 2011

Tonight my fiancé work late
I’m worried about him
As the wind blow such opposite of summer day

The night cloud darken
As the sky became such shade
The light of earth has dim flashlight
I’m worried about him…it drive me insane

The time of the clock ticking
Dinner time has past
He worked overtime tonight
My world worries was no delight

I wish him safe home and safe to work each day
And hope that God send an angel to protect him
To every place he be…near or far
Whether he beside me…bless him with peace

I love him so much
More than words can say
Worried about him each and everyday

Usually by now, he’ll call me somehow…
Awaiting for the phone to ring…but no sound…no nothing…
My heart is beating…I felt like screaming…
My mind is a bowl of worrisome

I called him many time…I text him few message
No he did not reply nor he answer…
Each tone after the beep I left him few words
But nothing was given in return…

Then suddenly a door bell rang…I rushed to see
It was my fiance…right back home to me…
I asked him what happen
He said someone robbed him…his phone and money…

I was lost in tears…and locked in his body tight…
Money and his phone wasn’t so important
As much as his life…

      Hello nasser and lintertrans, thank you so much for commenting. @ lintertrans, I too have worked late night and it was a habit for me then. I worked night shift and sometime I'm schedule to work someone else shift to replace one nurse absence. I haven't came to realization how my fiance worried about me so much when I'm out working so late. When I got laid off from work, now he's at work working late night shift, I started to worry about him. So, now I learn his feeling.

      Working late at night has often became a behavior for me.

      But this has really affected a million of people health wise and the people waiting for them at home mentally.

      But touched by your love to your fiancee.

      I wish you all the best.

      I'm voting interesting
