Get Rid Of The Advertisements

She Waits for Her Man

As she relaxes on a cool Autumn day
She has thoughts of her lover far away
She thinks of their sweet tender love
She gives thanks to the Father above
She cares deeply for him, as he does for her
She remembers the way they once were
They would gaze into each others eyes
Now she sits alone and she cries

Only memories she has now to keep
And dreams when she is able to sleep
She tries to forget the danger he faces
Every day in those strange foreign places
Where enemies are continually rising
And nothing at all is surprising
She knows he may not come home alive
But she keeps praying he will survive

She occupies her mind with the hope
Of building a home and it helps her cope
She wants to have three children to raise
Thinking of a baby helps her forget this craze
She often lives in a fantasy lovers world
They're together, as a fairy tale is unfurled
He carries her away and becomes her prince
She is his princess in the castle long since

Back to reality she drops in fright
She knows she's alone and all is not right
She does her job well every day
Spends money wisely and saves her pay
She writes him long long letters
Sits and knits him more sweaters
Trying hard not to be depressed
He is fighting for freedom,in which we are blessed
