The Days Somehow Passed

All the poems I read here inspired me...Here's mine....

The Days Somehow Passed

The days somehow passed after the first day we parted
Then came the weeks as I grew more heavy-hearted

I am now counting months and trying not to think of the even longer time to come
Some days I find it hard to believe we’re looking at the same moon and sun.

I pray the months don’t turn to years,
But I’m being more positive these days as I try to squelch the fears.

I have faith you’ll return safe and sound at last
And we’ll be together again, with the days apart gone in our past.
