As I lay beside you tonight here in our bed,
I begin to have thoughts of us racing thru my mind.

Watching you sleep, how peaceful you seem to be. Finally realizing just how much you mean to me.

I'm worried sick because you are in pain, not knowing what I can do make you feel better, to take away all your pain.

It breaks my heart to see you this way, when I have never seen you so weak. I've always seen you much stronger, I've always seen you in a different way.

I know I'm acting like a nervous wife, but that's what happens when your husband is in pain, after all you are my everything, you are my life.

I pray you get better, I don't know what to do. I want to make you feel better, after all I do love you.

All these years we've battled, we've had our ups and downs. We've had our smiles and laughter, we've had our fare share of tears and frowns.

And as I sit here tonight, watching you hurting this way, makes me hurt right along with you, because I don't know how to take this pain away.

I love you so very deeply, this I want you to know. And with each passing day that love continues to grow.

So until you get better and return to the strong man I've come to love, right beside you in our bed I will lay. So right beside you I lay tonight.

I wrote this on a night that my husband was under the weather. I was so worried because I had never seen him so weak, so helpless. But the day did come when my husband came back to me. Back to the strong and loving man that I knew.
