Sitting By The Phone


I tried to go to sleep but it isn't working... Something missing oh yeah my soldier Mathew.
Baby you complete my life and I am missing you. I wrote a little poem... Just a lil piece of me.

Here I sit by this phone, Just wishing it would ring, needing to hear the words of love, I know your call will bring. Once Again my day drags by, as I adapt to this new life, Spending my days and nights alone, as I wait for the time to pass. The hours pass, but they pass so slow, as I sit and await your call, I wipe away my tears, but more just seem to fall. I kiss our kiddos and tuck them in bed, and I watch as they fall asleep, I never knew that loneliness, could ever run this deep. As I sit here by this phone and wonder if your ok, there's only one thing that I can do, so I begin to pray. And I know that God heard me, as I bowed my head to him, because my phone started ringing, as I said keep him safe, Amen. As I picked up my phone, I whispered I love you, and my heart filled with joy again, when you said I love you too. I hold onto my phone, not wanting the call to end, so thankful for this time, we finally have to spend. The tears well up as you say goodbye, and I begin to weep, I take a deep breath and let out a sigh, as I try to fall asleep. But no matter where you are, we really aren't so far apart, It would take much more than distance, to separate our hearts. Because God joined our hearts in love, when we said those words for life, when you became my husband, and chose me for your wife.

I love you Mat. And I miss you. Please be safe. I'll be Thinking of you.
