So Far Away, a poem by A.S. Wilbik ~

When I think

Of being far away

I often sit

And often pray

That when I

Return to my wife

We will start

A whole new life

For any man

Who ever left his wife

Has known loneliness

In his life

For 12 long months

They sent me away

But when I return

It will be to stay

And no more will

I leave my wife

For she will be

My only life

And though I am

So far away

I will return

To you some day

"I love you"
