When Your Miles Away

when you’re miles away
what happens in between my day?
it sure would be lonesome, as it could ever be
for what else there is to smile?  
and what else there is to rejoice?
I sure would miss you,
like the moon misses the night
when the sun is up lingering,
wandering, watching, teasing
as it patiently waits for dusk

when you’re miles away
what happens in between my day?
it sure would be lonely, I swear
for what else there is to beam?
and what else there is to exult?
I sure would miss you,
like the wave misses the shore
when it’s out in the deep blue sea
waiting, longing, yearning
for the moment, the wind finally
tosses it back to the shore

when you’re miles away
what happens in between my day?
I sure could summon all the natural elements
all the gods and goddesses, all the fairy godmothers
and think of all the happiest thoughts I have
for it would be devastating as it could ever be

and when you’re miles away
my love remains the same, I say.

    I’m not sure if absence makes the heart grow fonder. When my hubby used to travel out of the country for work at weeks of a time it was challenging – but the oh the reunions. Lovely verse. πŸ˜€
