I'm strongest when I need to be,
Was strongest when you needed me,
To wrap our children in my arms,
And keep them safe from every harm.
Their momma's wings they'll stay within,
til Daddy's home again.
I calm their fears from every fright,
Keep watch by day, and more by night,
Fevers, doctors, bedtime tales,
Homework, playtime, new pet snails,
The weariness cannot set in
til Daddy's home again
Then finally the day is here,
And in the doorway you appear,
The tears I held inside before,
Now pour out freely to the floor.
You scoop me up, a melted mass,
My firm resolve like shattered glass.
Now I can let my strength wear thin,
'cause Daddy's home again.
Thank God you're home again.
**the tiniest notion of how I felt after holding down the fort for two weeks. So glad it's over!**
