Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
by Emma J. Best
Now it's Sunday night
And the waiting has been so hard,
Just watching for my children
My eyes have grown so tired.
I guess they are thinking
I could visit them instead,
Oh how I wish I could
But their dad is sick in bed.
I wonder if they know
How many steps it took you see,
Of mom going to them
They were too small to come to me.
I know they have their family
And it takes a lot of time,
So they just write a letter
But my tears wash out the lines.
Some day they will arrive
At dad and mother's home,
But it will be so empty
They will find themself alone.
Our waiting will be over
The children will be free,
They won't have to take time out
To visit dad and me.
I'm sure that up in heaven
Just inside the pearly gate,
Is a place for dad and me
Where we won't have to wait.
