Heavy rains, heavy heart.
It’s no secret I hate it when we’re apart.
The pressure is building in the air,
It feels, at time, more than I can bare.
At my weakest, lightening will strike.
The rivers will flood and breach the dike.
The rain pours on, and so do my tears.
Too much uncertainty, too many fears.
The wind is strong, the gusts won’t stop.
I feel like I’m drowning, reaching for the top.
The night is now silent, but the weather is loud.
Another storm looms in the cloud.
The flooding might end, but we’re just at the start,
Of the storm of deployment that consumes my heart.
