Long Day (Needing You) - Poem by Michael P. McParland
Oh my sweet Kira it's been a long day
and I wish you were here so I could hold you
and you could soothe me with your touch
saying it's okay my darling because we have each other.
We can hold on as long as we need to
until the frustration and sadness have passed us.
I'm sorry my darling that I was gone so long
but it's been a frustrating and discouraging one
and my sister lives far from the places we had to go.
I'm sorry I was not here for you more
because I love you so much and miss you so bad.
What a long day where even though I couldn't
control 99% of the few things that went wrong
I feel like I failed and am embarrassed,
it wasn't even big things I just hate failing
the people I love most and I worry
I failed you by not being her writing for you,
there was just stuff to do and so far from here
I hope you felt all of my love as I sent it to you
and you felt all of it's warmth surround you in full,
I thank you sweet darling because I felt you so strong
at my weakest points when I almost started to cry.
It's been such a long day and I need the woman I love
to help make me know it's okay and help me feel good.
I need you my sweet Kira because you're my everything.
Such a long day my Angel Kira so good,
so long in the car having to listen to
music I hate and going nuts while I did,
not a word from my mouth though out of respect,
it was not my car so not my choice.
I felt so down and embarrassed from the few things
that went wrong no matter that it was
not really something I could know or have control of,
and feeling so very tired with a headache
that now approaches a stupid migraine,
it's been a long day and Kira I want you to hold me
and help me forget all of the bad things.
I'm truly sorry if I've let you down,
you are an amazing woman I'm so very proud of.
Oh my sweet Kira such a long day that I wish
I could spend the rest of with you
my sweet precious diamond and darling,
a day where as I go close my eyes to rid
myself of this infernal headache
I wish I could hold you so close to me
and say Kira I love you and you are my woman,
I am your Michael forever and ever,
I wish I could spoon with you while I rest for awhile.
Kira I love you and I can't wait till
I see you and kiss you so very deeply.
God bless you my lady and if I hurt, worried,
or frustrated you today I'm so very sorry.
It's been a long day and I miss you so badly,
please come my sweet Kira and cuddle so lovingly
with me while I release what I am holding inside.
