"Loving A Policeman"


As you get ready for work each day
I watch quietly, and to God I silently pray
I know you must go, because duty calls
You have to keep the peace and enforce the laws

But each time that we kiss goodbye
It's sometimes hard for me not to cry
As I watch you walk out the door
My heart usually falls to the floor

For I always know it may have been my last chance
For one more kiss or one last glance
I know I have to always be strong
But I can't help but worry while you're gone

Each night as I lay in bed alone
I pray for the Lord to bring you safely home
I toss and turn for hours, but I eventually fall asleep
And I'm thankful when you awake me with a kiss on the cheek

I know what this job means to you
And I also know what the stress can do
So I want you to know just what you mean to me
And I hope I can always be the wife you need me to be
