    When I went to bed, I left on the light,
    But I didn't really know, if you'd be home tonight,
    After you stormed our, and slammed the door behind,
    I thought that was it, that I'd lost you to all time,
    I found my way to our bedroom and cried a sea of tears,
    Snuggled in the blanket, to try to hide my fears
    I hadn't meant the hurtful looks, or spiteful words I said,
    And now I lie alone and cold, on our big half empty bed,
    I listen to every sound, hoping it might be you,
    Instead it's only the night time, wondering where you are too,
    As I fell asleep, with nightmares on my mind,
    I hoped my love for you, in your heart you'd find,
    I wanted the moon light to find you, and bring you home to me,
    Because you're my everything, all I want and all I need,
    When I went to bed, I left on the light,
    But I didn't really know, if you'd be home tonight.

    DaFlavaFul - Thanks. I hate the waiting and the worrying and the wishing he would hurry up and get his arse home. :)

    Pd - thank you for your support on this one :)

    I am feeling this piece deeply, because I can identify closely with this experience. The anticipation, the tension, the dismay. I can remember times clinging to my quilt, lying in bed all alone after arguing with my man, wishing, hoping, waiting for him to come home, to come to bed-------just one more chance to apologize & say I love you......most definitely a trip down memory lane
