LETTER FROM HOME

Posted on January 26, 2008

I have been waiting for so long
waiting and waiting for you
to come home
life was not easy since you left.

Did I tell you?
that our children have grown
each has a family on their own
I am waiting for you
to come home – our home
I miss you.

There are times
that I miss you so much.
I wished to hear your voice
feel your soft touch
your presence at home
means so much
life with smiles, happiness and joy
I am waiting and waiting
for you to come home.

I hope and pray that one day
you will return to me
my heart is aching for you my love
waiting for you my Angel
Please return safe
to our home.

My love has never changed for you
you are the only one I love
missing you every day a lot
waiting and waiting
for your safe return home.

I promise to wait
until you will be back
the day is near
I feel the War will end soon
want you to know
that you mean so much to me
and I will be waiting
to celebrate those moments
of your safe return home
I love you.

  1. Separation due to War has always been the source of a lot of poetry and stories.

    My wife comes from a little island off the North coast of Scotland, called "Flotta".
    When you visit the cemetery, you discover all these graves to young men who fell in Flandres during World War One. It killed off an entire generation of young eligible men, and the island never recovered from the loss. Today, only a handful of people live there.

    It’s an amazing experience to walk there.

    Your poem touches on deep feelings, that are part of Man’s experience.

    There’s a hint of abandonment, and a patient, unyielding love, that is perhaps one of the finest emotions man can aspire to?

  2. Francis ~ Thank you for evaluating my latest poem. I can appreciate your comment in regard those fallen man in Flanders during World War One.

    I do not like Wars. Heart broken families especially when another fallen soldier from Iraq or Afghanistan been brought home dead. Those moments are hard for me to see. The loss is tremendous. I am not willing to express my grief over lost innocent live from either side. Why Man can not live in PEACE & HARMONY?

    This question always coming to my mind.Life is extremely precious and relatively short. Why killing one another…Why?

    Thank you…Zuzanna

  3. Well, Zuzanna, my friend, as always, I appreciate your point and kind emotions.

    Unfortunately… I suspect the worst thing we can do is to attribute to everybody else the attitudes, the values, the emotions and sentiments that we cherish ourselves.

    Because they don’t.

    It will change your mind perhaps to be in a situation, up against somebody who just wants to hurt or kill you, regardless. It’s no fun when they are coming at you, and you can see only a red, glazed, poisonous, killing hate in their eyes.

    Some people are deaf to rationalization, entreaties, pleading, appeals to reason, whatever. I have been up against some of those.
    I hate to hurt people, never mind coldly shooting them, but I’m no stranger to a side of Life that is as real and valid as the the path you and I seek for ourselves. Some people ONLY understand PAIN. That they respect. Nothing else.

    What I’m saying is this: yes, war is not good. But far be it from me to condemn our soldiers and sailors who are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. There is a lot of wonderful idealism there, and a lot of misguided thinking as well. It’s a VERY complicated subject.

    What is going to happen over there? Does anybody know?

    Despite all the political thinkers and advisers that Bush had, did ANYBODY really foresee the depth and intensity of the insurgency?

    What was it Colin Powell said, after the first Gulf War, when the US did NOT invade? When they asked him why, he is reported to have answered:

    "It would have been a tar pit"

    (Oh, boy…)

  4. Francis` I am in agreement what you have said. That situation is perhaps worse in your environment then mine at this time. I am not sure why the bad forces are overtaking people. Why there is so much hater toward one another. Really if you take into consideration that we are only a temporary travelers on this Earth, then why to hate another, why kill?
    This is far beyond my understanding. The World has changed and it is visible that is really scary to think what tomorrow may bring.

    I understand your point of views, it is hard to take a stand where corruption is involved. This will bring to a fall of the great Empire if people do not wake up. That applies to any Nation. I am afraid I need to close my comment as I would perhaps dwell on this forever. All what you have written make perfect sense. I wish that the people who are responsible for decision making process will foresee the dangerous situation that is deepening each day.

    Can not think about the worst, to make a "Tar Pit" out of the Nation.

    Thank you for the additional comment.
