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.
