missing The Wife

she's having semester break now. she went back to penang... it's been 6 days already. another 3 long days before she comes back... =(

the last time this happened, i wrote a song about it. it's in a minor key, very sad one. this is how it goes:

It's only a week
A week's not too long
To be lost and alone,
Heart tattered and torn
It's only a week
A week's not too long
To love you and miss you
And sing you this song:

A week, just a week
How my heart longs to seek
For the whole* that makes
Our oneness complete
A week, just a week
With desire i am weak
For the time when we
Again shall meet.

It's only a week
A week's not too long
I've been counting the days
With heart so forlorn
It's only a week
A week's not too long
Until i can hold you
And sing you this song:

A week, such a week
Now my hand, touch your cheek
And we're whole, for He makes
Our oneness complete
A week, such a week
But it's done, we can speak
Face-to-face once again
Praise the Lord as we meet.

*This is a reference to the idea that marriage consists of two whole
people whom God joins together to become one flesh. =)

Apart from pining away for The Wife, here are some upcoming events that you can pray for together with me:

after you have kids, you don't seem to miss the spouse so much because the kids keep you busy. no time to write songs.

siehjin said...

@buffafly: haha, thanks for the heads-up! good thing i did it while i had the time then. =)

you gotta relax... don't try too hard ya. We also learned thru experience that making a baby isn't all that simple. After 8 months of trying, we ditched the thermometer, basal body temp graphs, calendars etc and went on a holiday..... and Joseph was made in Melbourne! Then we conceived 2nd baby after 4 months of trying and miscarried after 9weeks. We had Joy-Anne when we didn't try. So just wait for God's perfect timing!
