Gone Again (a Poem)

This breathless emptiness in my chest,

makes it hard to breath.

 

I know he did not intend to leave,

nor did he want to.

 

His blasted integrity makes him

take another trip and…

 

the kid suffers as much as I do.

She becomes cranky.

 

Her grumpiness causes me to feel

even more lonely.

 

I am angry because I cry…

I should know by now,

 

it has nothing to do with me.

Always it’s just work.

 

Driving the distance or flying,

I want to go too.

 

He says someday I will be able to

have travel fun with him.

 

But until that righteous day comes,

keep our home fires burning.
