I grieve the days of having time with you alone. I long for just a little time of us. I think of the times we were free. We went everywhere. Always together. Plenty of time for each other. Always side by side.
Now, we are lucky to have child care when we are working. I long for your touch. Sometimes, I look at you from across the room and wish for what was. I wish for a day like we used to have.
I see how people get lost in their marriage. They drift apart. They lose their Union. I promise that I will never lose my love and desire for you. Perhaps the distance strengthens my need for you.
But, I am recognizing, here and now that it’s ok for me to grieve the days we used to have. You’ll always have my heart.
