Tidal Wave

It's been so long since I have heard your voice;
my yearnings swell and overrun my heart.
One glimpse of you would make my soul rejoice,
for life's been harsh since we have been apart.
Perhaps in time this vale of tears will pass
and I can see the sun above the mist,
but now my world is just a darkened mass,
an endless night where day does not exist.
It is so hard to try to carry on;
like tidal waves the pain engulfs my soul.
I reach for you and find that you are gone,
and in my heart I find an empty hole.

Come back to me, my husband and my friend;
without you near the night will never end.
