Every day I sit, I pray, I watch.
He left with my heart to defend his nation and left me here behind.
Every day I sit and watch and pray, today he will return.
On the porch I can see the street up which he must come.
Every day seems like any day of my little life.
My daddy hasn’t seen me yet, I was not even born.
Every day I watch and pray today ends every day.
I don’t even know him except through stories told.
Every day I sit in mommies lap and wait for daddies return.
Though I’m not old enough to even voice a word I miss him just the same.
So this is my every day mommy and me, waiting, watching, and praying.
Is today the day that every day, becomes my happily ever after?
