Parting!

Parting from you was hard to bear

a sense of loss felt inside

love so deep only we could share

would know if you had lied

as together time passed so fast

without you seemed to slow

but how often reflected the past

without you life did not flow!

 

Those weeks passed truly lusted you

felt as if part of me was gone

missed those walks in morning dew

for your touch did greatly long

each revolution of the ticking clock

painful for me to watch alone

with sad refrain picked up the frock

thrown for reasons unknown!

 

My love grew while you were away

sunlight dull without you

noticing more dark clouds of grey

wondered if you missed me to

then an unexpected message sent

days sparkled with your intent!

Tearful Parting!

In her tear filled eyes it could be seen

the anxiety of his parting.

Overwhelming this she couldn’t hide

a future without him foreseen!

To both visible emotion building inside

that neither could hide!

 

In his uniform no prouder wife around

preparing to part with his unit.

A six month tour fraught with danger

not alone in these fears!

With that one last farewell tender kiss

they could never miss.

 

This was his third tour would the  luck last

each harder to accept.

That nagging thought would he come back

yet he wanted to go!.

With great composure the children waved

any bad thoughts he staved!

 

It hurt that last wave and tearful parting

from this mission didn’t return!

They knew but words couldn’t express

remembering that last caress.

 

The family was reunited once more

when he was carried home!
