This Evening

Woman smiling through window
Where will you go this evening?
Will I be able to find you?
I keep your safety close to my heart.
The incident I fear
could be seconds away.
I hope that we will reunite tomorrow.

As the days pass,
my anxiety is mellowing;
I have experienced
your safe passage
every day so far.

Now, when I am working alone
I feel your love in a new way.
Now, every time I sleep,
your smile fills my mind.
