many soldiers liked to claim,
many received 'dear John' letters
from those who bore their name.
War brides saw off their serviceman,
to wait long years of war,
did absence make their hearts grow
fonder-some were not sure.
Explorers left wives at home
to travel to unknown lands,
were they greeted upon return
when grasped in familiar hands?
The joy of returning
to those we left at home,
whenever we do return
from where we may roam.
Seeing the wonder of other climes
though grander than our home,
makes us fonder of the familiar
and yearn for hearths well known.
Absence from work, be it
holidays or absconding,
makes the place seem
better than fonding.
God is never absent from
those called by his name.
“I am always with you”
is his substantial claim.
