Every Other Weekend:A Poem For My Daughters

Every other weekend it's always the same

I pack your bags and take you away.

Every other weekend we make the drive

The road is long but we survive.

Every other weekend I hug you a little tighter when I say good bye

Trying my best not to cry.

Every other weekend you look forward to seeing your dad

He is as well...so glad.

Every other weekend I make the trip back home

It's such a long road alone.

Every other weekend I have a lot of time

To sit, think and realize.

Every other weekend I never thought it would be

But things happen that you can't change you see.

Every other weekend I make plans to see and do and go

Because all I do is miss you so.

Every other weekend my heart hurts a little more

For what our life was going to be before...

Every other weekend.
