Please know you’re always with me,
Even when I’m far away,
I think about you constantly
You’re with me through the day.
I carry little bits of you;
The pockets of my mind
Are almost full to bursting
With the memories I find
Returning to me often
Bringing smiles to my face
As the thought of my two darling girls
Lights up the darkest place.
So whilst my hand’s not in yours
And I’ll not be home tonight,
Please know you travel with me
And in my dreams I hold you tight.
[A poem for Lyra and Ellie whilst I’m working away from home]
