Waiting for 10-21-2008........
Today is October 18, 2008 and in three days I will be celebrating at home.
Very anxious and waiting by the phone.
Waiting in excitement just to hear from you.
So many things to say, so many things to do.
My heart pounds as I try to decide what to say.
Besides Happy 2nd Anniversary; today is our day.
What will I wear, where will we go?
I hope you have everything planned, how I hope so.
Six years together, 2 boys, and 4 stepdaughters later.
Things couldn't be any greater.
You and I spending the entire day together.
Until you call, I will begin writing you a love letter.
I'll start it off by saying "I LOVE YOU BOOP".
Mmm, good just like Campbell's Soup.
Silly but all so true.
Oh, how I miss you.
As I continue to write, I notice that my eyes are closed. Must be sleep walking.
I must be, because I just remembered a year ago we stopped talking.
I also remember that I've been waiting by the phone around this same time last year.
Praying, hoping, wishing to hear from you as I began to shed a tear.
Still today I sit and wait for you to return to me-your wife.
Hoping you stop playing house with the new woman in your life.
Wondering why I haven't moved on.
It has been a year too long.
They say love is blind, but I can see.
How much pain I'm in. How could you do this to me?
Don't you believe in for better or for worse?
My love for you wasn't enough to quench your thirst.
This whole plan, I must abort.
You should be thanking the Heavens above that I didn't go for child support.
I hoped this letter would have had a happy ending.
The next time you hear from me, I'll have started a new beginning.
