A Cop's Wife

Staring at the TV,
Fighting waves of fear,
Never feeling certain
My husband will be here
Iím a copís wife

Knowing that itís likely
He will come home to me
But having ever-present dread
That harm may come to him

First there are the hours
He spends away from home
Perfecting his profession
And sharpening his skills

Then there are the late nights
Heís answering a call
And the family interrupted
Because the nature of the job

But through all the disruptions
Of a never normal life
I know he and fellow officers
Are keeping the streets safe

Though there is frustration
Iím proud as I can be
My dedicated love so true
Is my hero dressed in blue
Iím a copís wife



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I definitely agree with Todd on that point; the "I'm a cops wife" almost became the chorus in a rap song...(do rap songs have choruses?) The tempo was violated, no matter how well intentioned the line was, as a writer it took away from what you wanted to say. Or, perhaps, since this is the essence of the poem, "I'm a cops wife" could be brought out in other ways. My man's out on the streets in darkness. I'm fearful for his life. I'm scared a crime will take him; Though, I'm proud to be his wife. Was this haiku/rap poetry? :o)

This was a very interesting article which really conveyed the fear and pride that goes hand in hand with being "a cop's wife". I think that the poem would be even more powerful if you only used the "I'm a cop's wife" as a one line header and then as the last line of the poem. I found myself wanting to jump over the "I'm a cop's wife" line because it seemed to interrupt the flow of a very good poem. Thank you for writing this and may God bless your husband and family!
