You Should Know

Long days and even longer nights;
This is how I live my life.
I want so much to feel you near;
I know however you can't be here.

In my heart you always stay.
I think of you throughout the day.
It's funny, see, just how things work.
It takes so little to make me hurt.

I miss you more each passing minute.
Home's much larger without you in it.
Reminders of you all around;
Your cologne and this shirt I found.

I now find comfort in strange places.
Not just in friends and familiar faces,
But in sounds and smells and sights and places.
These small things lessen my heart's spaces.

The smell of diesel, the sound of the Jake,
These small things make my heart quake.
I hear these sounds, I smell these smells,
I know that you think of me as well.

A big red Pete now makes me smile.
It makes my soul soar for a while.
A covered wagon now brings a grin,
I think about the one you're in.

It's these little things every day
That remind me why I live this way.
I love my trucker, I miss him so;
The hardest thing is letting go.

In my heart I'll always see
That for him as well, this is not easy.
I'll do my best when I'm alone
To make a place for him to call home.

I'm just as proud as proud can be,
For I know my trucker loves me.
He comes home, I hold him tight.
I assure him that all is right.

2005 Jenna M.
Dedicated lovingly, loyally to my trucker.
