HURRY HOME

 HURRY HOME

As I drive you to the airport
knowing you'll be gone for long
you'll be leaving us today
but it's your job it must be done
with tears in our eyes
we bid our goodbyes
I asked you to be strong
please don't cry
As I walked away I didn't turn back
as much as my heartache
I knew you'd be back
as we walked to the car
I said kids please don't cry
its only for awhile
not a forever goodbye
I said daddy will be back soon
but not soon enough
till then we have to be rugged
we have to be tough
you'll be gone for six months
and only days have passed
I wonder if I'll make it
how will I last
the loneliness I feel
the tears I have shed
are just the beginning
of a rough road ahead
the days they are long
and the nights they are lonely
I have dreams about you
when you were here to hold me
these days will not last forever
they will soon dwindle down
you will first have to travel
the whole world around
just know that we miss you
and please don't prolong
hurry home darling
back home where you belong
