The Silent Partner

My husband is off again and will be away. For me it means doing everything and for him missing out on our daughter. The Silent Partner here happens to be my husband but it could just as easily be me. I love his support and what he does for our family and even though he’s not always here, I want our daughter to understand what he’s doing and why he’s doing it.

The Silent Partner

Someone special puts the silent time in,

A rock to this family, the underpin.

Like a mouse they’ll work without being seen

And repeat a travel, work, travel routine.

This may tire them but when they get in,

They hold you and swing you, their boutique gym.

They don’t always see you but they’ll smile,

The thought of you makes everything worthwhile.

Their goal is for your happiness to spread

And be back in time to put you to bed.

Mama Grace

    Though we’ve no little ones now, my husband does shift work as it pays better than regular hours. We’ve started to plan our first family holiday in years, so the sacrifice is definitely worth it!

  2. Aw this is so sweet, lovely poem. I am the silent partner at the moment and it’s so hard, but when you do get home you really soak in each minute you do have with the family. : ) Thanks for sharing with #StayClassyMama!
