Someday, when I get home
I’ll kiss your lips with unbridled passion

Someday, when I get home
I’ll hold you close and feel your warmth

Someday, when I get home
I’ll whisper, “I love you” into your ear

Someday, when I get home
We’ll take long walks and hold each other’s hands

Someday, when I get home
We’ll fall asleep while watching the stars

Someday, when I get home
You’ll wake to see my smile

Someday, when I get home
We’ll plan our life and our future

Someday, if I get home
I promise I’ll never leave you again

Someday…

THE EMPTY ROOM… a poem

Once, there was laughter and tears

Here in this now abandoned room

Memories of a life filled with love

But now it resembles a tomb

***********************

Worn down with neglect and broken hearts

Like the paint peeling off the walls

Emptiness fills the voids within

Just as it fills these halls

************************

He made a promise that he would come back

Then one fateful day came the letter

And the love of her life was gone in a flash

As she crumpled inside like a sweater

************************

Little by little her heart found strength

In the need of her sweet children’s eyes

Alas, she moved on from the bitterest song

And let go – with farewells and goodbyes
