a military wife

please don’t go

i beg my love

i am pleading at the door

you know i must

but ill return

he says as he picks his boots up off the floor

please dont go

i must my love

ill be back as soon as i can

i shed a tear

i give a kiss

he cups my face in his hands

worry not, oh

fear not my love

for i am trianed and i am true

no matter how long

and no matter the way

i am comming home to you

as i watch him leave

i sob and think

will we ever meet again?

the days go by

my soul is numb

i cry myself to sleep

i go through the motions

i live my life

but my heart it forever weeps

but then one day

a stirring breeze

it settles over my soul

he’d kept his promise

he had returned

my love who had been gone

as i promised my love

he kisses my lips

im sorry it took so long

i stand there blank

as the music plays

but i am not alone

my love is here

he holds me close

as they gently carry him home

please dont go

i beg my love

as they burry him in his best

ill not leave you my love

im always here

as he lays his hand upon my chest

i cannot hold him

my tears run free

i say my last good-byes

to the soldier who kept

his promise the best

for his soul returned to my side

Melissa Spalding-to all the other military wifes, may this never happen to us
