Head In the Clouds

Today I really missed Tom. It was just one of those days that it's not a "bad" day you just can't get your mind off of him, and any other prison wife will know exactly what I am talking about. Its like everything you see reminds you of him, every song is your song and you just wish he was coming home tomorrow rather than 161 days from now, but what are you gonna do right? Today I caught myself looking into the sky, wondering was he looking at the sky at that very moment too? I seem to do this a lot. Like is he looking at the moon when I am? Is he missing me right this second, is he laying on his bunk wondering what I am doing while he listening to his long awaited radio? The clock assumes my time, whether its getting home to answer the phone or to just wonder what he is doing at that time. Like right now its 11:43 p.m. in New Jersey, which means he is probably fast asleep after reading a chapter in his book, listening to the Eagles games. God, this man has my head in the clouds, but the best part is watching the sunrise, clouds pass and the sunset, knowing another day is closer to having my husband home. A day which I have been looking forward to for 147 days now (I think that's how long). Once I got onto the phone with him tonight, I could feel the smile from ear to ear and hear the smile in his voice, was worth all of the missing him. Laughing with him, teasing one another and just to hear "I love you" and "I miss you" for the last 60 seconds over and over, makes me not even want to hit the end button on my phone. I love Mr. Lewis and he is worth everyday that has already passed and all the days we have ahead.


  1. You're amazing and I hope the next 161 days goes by before you know it.....
