I stayed home those Wednesdays
Just to have a special hour with you
But now there is no phrase
For my love for you is honest and true

I promised when you left
To take care of Mommy and my sisters but I don’t know how
How can I when my heart has experienced theft?
How am I to take charge for now?

I promised to be your big girl while you were gone
I promised as soon as you got back, the first hug would be mine
How can I when my heart is like an orphaned fawn?
Missing you and your love that was divine

I miss those days spent with you
I still don’t know how
I am supposed to breathe when your emails don’t come through
But I guess I still have to take charge for now

My dad left for 6 months on a NATO mission and I hope people will understand the heartbreak Navy children feel.
