Philly's Shoe, Missing You
 
I guess sometimes life just isn't fair,
otherwise it would last forever,
you'd also be by my side
and we'd spend our first anniversary together.
 
Sometimes life doesn't always work out,
exactly as you'd planned,
sometimes it's hard to figure out why,
sometimes it's hard to understand.
 
Now I think of you over there
and mere distance may keep us apart,
just know that I love you very much
and you are always in my heart.
 
Your son misses you too,
I guess that should come as no surprise,
but whenever I need to see your face,
I just look into his bright, smiling eyes.
 
Do you know you have made me so happy?
I couldn't have picked better - even if I'd tried
and I hate the thought of you being at war,
there are nights where I've just cried and cried.
 
But I know a soldiers' duty is a big one
and if you had the choice, you'd be here with me,
together we'd camp and drive through the country,
together, we'd find our better place to be.
 
My heart aches so, I get lonely and scared,
 I can't sleep at night without you in the bed,
 every phone call from you is so precious,
because you are walking where many fear to tread.
 
Our son misses your voice too,
every time he hears you, you should see his smile,
he loves it when I say Dada to him,
(and I may say that more than just once in a while).
 
I remember when we went camping
and we awoke to a mattress with no air,
we'd slept the night on a hard floor,
another magical moment I'm glad we shared.
 
How free and happy we were together,
I would do anything to have that time again,
of course, this time we'll take our son with us
and I'll keep dreaming of that time, sometime when.
 
We plan to go away when you get back
and that's a promise you're bound to keep,
I'll even get the mattress repaired,
at least that way, we'll get a good nights sleep.
 
But seriously, the night we met on the Internet
and then spent the next nine hours on the phone,
I knew then that you were the one for me,
I knew then that I'd never be alone.
 
So, hurry home safely my darling,
I'm missing the mess you always make,
I'm missing your little compliments
and you know that flattery is all it ever takes.
 
So, hurry home safely my darling
and please don't forget little Philly's shoe,
just know that I love you very much
and if you haven't guessed it by now - I'm missing you!
 
And Happy First Anniversary darling,
that's really what these words are for,
just know that I love you very much
and that I'll love you for evermore.
