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!

So Close!

In my mind its wonderful when we meet

so close to you I deeply feel

our flirtatious banter is always a treat

secretly having that tender appeal!

 

But know it is only within my lonely mind

an imaginary female friend that’s all

so perfect thoughtful gentle and very kind

there when others ignore my call!

 

In the silence you comfort me from fear

raise my spirits halting even one tear

giving me the will to live yet another day

keeping that dark depression at bay!
