Hes counting the miles.
Im counting the minutes.
He says hell be home
in time for supper.
I wonder just what
time that is exactly.
He tells me
that he misses me.
I tell him
I miss him too.
It has only been
a few days.
But we are rarely apart,
so it seems longer.
His empty recliner
makes me a little sad.
But it wont be empty much longer.
The darned old TV
will be blaring the news again.
And hell be waking me up
to roll me over because Im snoring.
Funny the things you do
and do not miss,
like his kisses
and tripping over his boots.

Pinkypersona,
He just got back from Idaho 2 days and winds up in the hospital with pneumonia, where he'll be for the next couple of days. His boots are right in the middle of the floor where he left them. Think I'll leave them there a while. ~L
