When the Day Is Done

When the day is done, I retire to my empty bed all alone. Longing for your arms around me. Weeping for your love to comfort me. My heart aching, needing you next to me. When I wake, the days are long and drawn out, as I wait patiently for the hours to pass by, Work finally comes so I can see you again. As we work earnestly, across the room your presence is known. Unable to touch, but the "I LOVE YOU" blown with a kiss, sustains me until I am in your arms at last. The time we share together each night flies by so quickly. I cherish every moment. My legs don't want to move when its time to walk you to the door. At this point in our lives, I know we must restrain from the commitment of, waking in the morning together and saying "Good Night My Darling" Growing in friendship, guiding us to unconditional love must be our priority. Hand in Hand, Heart to Heart. Together forever will be our reward. But, in the meantime, until we get there to that special place in our lives. I will continue to........ Retire to my empty bed all alone. Long for your arms around me. Weeping for your love to comfort me. My heart aching needing you next to me. When the day is done.
