My Husband's Heartbeat

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

I had a rough day today

   Putting out fires

Doing damage control

   Again.

Running here to lend a ear

   Racing there to give a hand

Putting everyone in line before you.

   I had to help!

Who else was going to?

   It's my job

As a daughter and a sister,

   And you understand that.

I came home totally drained,

   Spending my energy trying to fix everybody,

And even I know that,

   Most of my efforts will have been in vain.

Because I am not God,

   And I have no control,

Because it is not up to me,

   What hardships people have to endure.

But when I got home,

   And I so desperately needed to,

Let go...

   You hugged me.

And I rested my head on your chest,

   Listening to your heart,

Like I used to do.

   The bump-bump soothed my worries,

Reminding me that it's okay,

   I don't have to save everyone.

I love this. It's amazing how simply putting your head on someone's chest can make your worries dissipate.

No...Thank You! I know only enough about you to say thank you for being who you are :Wonderful" To do what you do for long hours helping others may help in your writing prowess. I always enjoy the morning when I see your name on our billboards....

No...Thank You! I know only enough about you to say thank you for being who you are :Wonderful" To do what you do for long hours helping others may help in your writing prowess. I always enjoy the morning when I see your name on our billboards. Your poem reminds all of us men, how much we need the smarter and prettier sex, "you actually make our lives" so much better just being you. So thanks again.
