To my Valentine

Here I sit

All broken hearted

(side note:  all good poems begin with this line.)

Because you split,

Your plane departed.

A week ago,

A sandy beach

Basking in sun

A drink within reach.

20110212_192817_7964

You’ve left me now,

Jetting out west.

At a computer geek conference,

Where you’re the best of the best.

You’ll spend Valentines Day

With some strange man.

I will be spending it

Inside our van.

20110212_192840_7968

Taxiing Boy Scouts

And piano lessons.

Enjoying our children,

Counting our blessins’

20110212_192900_7969

This lovers’ holiday

Will be spent disjointed

Please know, however

That I am not disappointed.

20110212_192906_7970

Because we never “do”

This mushy holiday

We find it stupid,

This game we don’t play.

20110212_194547_7971

Just enjoy co-rooming

With the Korean

It wont be long

Before you I’m seein’.

20110212_194550_7972

When you return

Home at last,

Know how I rocked it

In the time that has passed.

20110212_194612_7975

When I tell you

A nap I’ll be taking,

Know single parent burn-out

I wont be faking.

20110212_194617_7976

But I still get the

Better end of the deal

Sleeping in my own bed

Sure has it’s appeal.

20110212_194626_7977

I’ll miss you, no doubt

Parenting is for two.

When you are out

I note all that you do.

20110212_194555_7974

Safe travels, to you

My very best friend.

I’ll hold down the fort

Till you’re home again.

20110212_192906_7970

PS.

My goal this week?

To lose the five pounds

While you peruse

Puget Sounds.

I am 100% sure

That you need to too.

Remember that when

The hotel fitness center calls to you!!

Mama's Losin' It
