Life as a Sailor's Wife

'I don't want this life anymore'

A thought she often thought

Left behind, feeling hopeless

Love was easy

Holding onto feeling forgotten

Made even easier

The ache in her heart

The heaviness in her head

As every day began a battle

she fought to keep moving forward,

Knowing that it wasn't forever

The leaving of a lover,

The wait of their return

Over and over,

And repeated again

The life of a Sailor's wife

More glorified than treasured
