You Have Been Gone Five Days

Updated on March 28, 2014

Welcome Home

I can't wait to see your face

The smile that carries me from day to day

This is the first time we have been apart since we were married

Almost thirteen years ago

We are a couple and we have our routine

You tell me it's time to go to bed late at night

I keep saying I am coming soon

Then I roll into bed two hours later

You are by my side

In the middle of the night I keep trying to take more covers

But you put up to good of a fight

I had a wonderful sleep and when I ask you how yours was

You tell me the craziest nightmare

How could we be so different ?

I want to write all day

You rather watch t.v. and I ask you to turn it down

Each night you tell me tomorrows weather

Even though only half the time you are right

You sometimes wake up before me and you make your homemade pancakes

That I can't wait to eat

I have to remind you to take your vitamin and to do a morning exercise

We commute together

I drive to work and you drive home

We both play with our cat at different times to tucker her out

I get the mail and you make out any bills

We have our differences like any couple

It's not long till we find a solution that we both agree on

Love is in the air and I can't wait to share

Together we are a pretty incredible team

They say you don't know what you have until it's gone

I say I knew right from the start

I have my wonderful honey to hold and talk to

Even though she falls asleep after her feet gets rubbed

She is mine and I am hers

I know you had to go but now I am glad you are back and here to stay

      Really nice and so true. When two people are in love it's like being a team and it's a great feeling.
