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.
