In a Hotel Room

I sit on the edge of the bed thinking Wishing you were here or that I was there These work related trips keeps me hurting But then my heart, I come to you and share I sit in the middle of a moon beam That comes into the room’s hotel window A lonely bit of light, lonely it seems Opens the room to its cool silver glow I pout as I lay onto the hard bed Seemingly to sure keep me up all night I texted her with my whole soul, I sure pled Hoping she’s up and will respond tonight It’s hard to be away from by loved one But soon I'll be home, my love will be shown

    Love this one !! I've spent many a night away from home alone in a hotel room. It was my job that took me away from home from Mon to Friday for years. I remember those nights of missing loved ones. You've captured it well within your words. Excellent writing skills my friend !! Thanks for faithfully reading and commenting on my words. This is a winner to me !!
