An Empty House

Updated on November 21, 2011


This morning I woke and into the kitchen I went

For a fresh cup of coffee my minds focus was bent

As I approached the counter, two cups sat alone

Another reminder my wife wasn’t home


As I poured out the nectar in the quiet still house

I thought about you, my dear friend and spouse

I thought about all the things that you do

The little things that bring joy, and remind me of you


After work I’ll come home at the end of the day

And again I’m reminded that you are away

There’s no food on; the kitchens quiet and bare

No welcoming kiss or warm greeting waits there


I know you’ll return home and be with me in time

Then my world will return once again and I’ll find

The peace that you bring your smile and your touch

All the things that compel me to love you so much

      Ahhh you big softie. I can always rely on you to say it from the heart. I adore your vulnerability my friend, but then your wit and sarcasm would be missed as well. Beautifully written, your wife is a very lucky lady. This should be inside a personal card Stuart!

      thanks very much to all of you. This was just a simple note I sent to my wife while she was away. It's nice to see others opinions and comments.

      This is love

      These are the little things that make you love

      These are the reasons why you care and love someone

      Those simple moments and gestures

      That bring you closer everyday

      When the everyday is brighten up

      By their presence

      you know you have found the essence

      you enjoy in your life

      today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow

      Love as simple, deep and true

      Love and peace on all
