From March to November was eight months.  November to April is only five.  But it feels like forever and I’m missing him so much it hurts.  I watch things that remind me of him and I ache inside.  I’m anxious and jittery and feel like I could jump out of my skin at any moment.  I need him home, I need his arms around me (geez, I can’t type arm without accidentally typing army).  I miss curling up next to him, smelling his scent, hearing his laugh, holding his hand, watching him play with Aidan and just being near him.  These are the longest days of my life.

Come Home Soon by SheDaisy

I put away the groceries
And I take my daily bread
I dream of your arms around me
As I tuck the kids in bed

I don’t know what you’re doin’
And I don’t know where you are
But I look up at that great big sky
And I hope you’re wishin’ on that same
bright star

I wonder, I pray

And I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it’s so hard livin’ here on my own
So please, come home soon
(Come home soon)

I know that we’re together
Even though we’re far apart
And I’ll wear our lucky penny ’round my neck
Pressed to my heart

I wonder, I pray

[Repeat Chorus]

I still imagine your touch
It’s beautiful missing something that much
But sometimes love needs a fighting chance
So I’ll wait my turn until it’s our turn to dance

I wonder, I pray

[Second Chorus:]
I sleep alone
I cry alone
Without you this house is not a home
So please, come home soon

[Third Chorus:]
I walk alone
I try alone
I’ll wait for you, don’t want to die alone
So please, come home soon

Come home soon
Come home soon
