Waiting

Every day, I sit at my window, waiting I’ve stayed for you- I will stay until you come home And every time, you do Every time, I jump into your arms My joy, becomes so much, I begin to cry And yet, even as I cry You always thank me for waiting You start inside, with me in your arms Like I’d somehow leave you No matter the job that you do No matter how long, I’ll wait for you to come home Please, never forget your home Never forget Mommy and I cry And I know, even you do But know, we’ll always be waiting We’ll always be there for you Waiting to hold our precious soldiers in our arms I hear him say, while in his arms “Next time, Daddy will stay home” I’ll always get to see you I won't have to cry No more waiting What will we do? “We’ll do everything you want to do” Right now, all I want, is to stay in your arms Even though, I’ll have to go back to waiting Next time, when you come home I promise not to cry I’ll never have to say goodbye to you … ...Where are you? ...What did I do? I didn’t break my promise, I didn’t cry I want to be held in your arms Please, I want you home Please, no more waiting I want to be with you, in your arms What do I have to do? Why didn’t you come home? I don’t want to cry, please, I’m tired of waiting
