Loving a Man in Prison

Loving a man in prison, is not always easy to do
It's being young, yet feeling old,
It's loving him with nothing to hold.
It's his writing of his love for you,
It's writing him back saying "I love you too."
A kiss each visit, and the promise to wait,
Knowing the parole board holds his fate.
It's reluctantly, painfully letting him go,
It's hurting inside from needing him so!
Loving a man in prison has a high price to pay,
Cause you're loving him more with every passing day.
You're alone with only your hopes, dreams and fears,
Loving a man in prison, sheds many tears.
But there will be real love in your life, when his time is done,
But only through faith in your heart will his battle be won!

Beautiful. I'm sure there have been links to this website before, but I just found it and it has some very touching poems on it. It is from the Family and Corrections Network website. It is called The Wall.

Loving a Man in Prison

Loving a man in prison, is not always easy to do
It's being young, yet feeling old,
It's loving him with nothing to hold.
It's his writing of his love for you,
It's writing him back saying "I love you too."
A kiss each visit, and the promise to wait,
Knowing the parole board holds his fate.
It's reluctantly, painfully letting him go,
It's hurting inside from needing him so!
Loving a man in prison has a high price to pay,
Cause you're loving him more with every passing day.
You're alone with only your hopes, dreams and fears,
Loving a man in prison, sheds many tears.
But there will be real love in your life, when his time is done,
But only through faith in your heart will his battle be won!
