Waiting


Iíll miss you while you are gone
I am trying hard not to yawn
It is getting very late
It is your return I do await
Sitting here on the couch all alone
Oh how I wish they could have known
How to do it themselves
Now you wonít be home till after twelve
So few hours until the morning
I hope the get a warning
For taking you away from me tonight
This, my dear, is just not right
There should be others who know what to do
Why do they always count on you
I wish it was so easy to blow them off
It would be easier to get rid of a nagging cough
It is your job, I should understand
But once in a while they really need a good backhand
I donít mean to nag or be a bitch
If they were to get it right that would be a switch
So I guess I will wait for you to get in
This is when our night will begin

This is beautiful, Maureen. I could feel the longing in it.

Maureen,

I feel your frustration.  Yes, it isn't fair.  Yes, you should understand. Yes, there should at least be equal time for you. "They" owe you BIG TIME! This is from a person on the other side of your poem.  I have been called away for WEEKS to fix problems. I didn't like being away from my family either!

Iím Sorry

I know Iím called away often
Paged whenever not there
It should feel good to be so important
But Iíd give it all up to be here

Sometimes I wish there were others
Who would like to try being me
On call every minute, regardless
Tougher than it seems to be

Iíd love to take a vacation
Leave that place behind
Grab you and take off
Time for us to unwind

Until that day gets here
Iím stuck doing everything
Working with no brainers
Making my pager sing

Amazing Maureen. I could also feel the longing in this poem.

There should be others who know what to do
Why do they always count on you

Wonderful
