Knowing I will be alone

When my day is over
And I approach our home
My heart starts to get heavy
Knowing I will be alone

I have to take a deep breath
when I open up the door
With the memories of your smile
As you're running down the hall
you'd hold your arms up high
With your eyes shining so bright
reaching up on tip-toes
so I can hold you tight

I long to hear those questions
Come flooding from your lips
Like where do apples come from
Or why can't I have nits

When you're a little older
I show you what I write
So you'll know Daddy loves you
When you go to bed at night
