The rain fell today and I stood in it and closed my eyes
I lifted my hands and began to spin
I hit the ground and just laid there thinking of you
I thought of being in your arms
A Lady In Waiting
A lady in waiting that is what I am, for waiting I must do to see my man.
I must wait while my man risks his life for the country he loves so much.
I do not know if he will return whole, I do not know if he will return at all.
I am the weight of the world on my family's shoulders.
I am the burden they must carry.
I am useless. I am hopeless.
I am the rock they must carry to the mountain.
