Slowly I awaken and reach for you
Finding only the pillow you left behind.
Pulling it close I take in a breathe
And smell the scent that is uniquely your kind.
Dreamily I remember the night before
And snuggle the pillow closer to my heart.
The love we share is something rare.
It has grown from the very start.
I close my eyes and dream of you
Gone out into the world.
While I laze about in our bed alone
And wait for you to come home.
Some would say that you spoil me,
But they don’t know all of our tale.
The years we have spent together
Struggling, we weathered each gale.
Now is our time to enjoy one another,
To laugh and love and to play.
Our job as parents is done and now
We act like young lovers every day.
Our dues have been paid
Our hard times are over and done.
I wait in our bed for you, sleepy and sated,
I wait for you. Come, let’s be one.
