During the Time I’m Away from You
I’m sorry I won’t always be there to tell you “Good night,”
or kiss you “Good morning.”
I’m sorry I won’t always be there to hug you and tell you
“Everything will be alright.”
I won’t always be able to hear what you need to
get off your chest or how great your day went.
I won’t always be able to hear all your funny jokes
or see the pictures you send me right away.
But know that I’m always thinking of you.
I keep your picture next to my heart.
I kiss it every evening and ask
God to keep you safe and for us
to see each other soon.
It’s impossible to tell you how much I love you,
I hope my actions say it all.
‘Til the next time we speak again, my love.
