Each Moment

She's looking out at the water
waiting for the day to end
aware when the sunset is near
more time with him will begin.

Moment seems like hours
waiting until he comes home
but then time passes too fast
it seems in a moment it's gone.

Time never stops, it creeps on
sadly life passes the same way
she intends enjoying each moment
with him, both night and day.

The last day for one of them
she knows the future has in store
if she's the one who must carry on
each day she'll miss him a little more.
