Loving A Convict
Written By: Andre Scales
Loving a convict is so hard they say,
Loving him is the price you have to pay,
It’s loving him with no one to hold,
It’s being young and feeling old.
It’s letting him whisper his love to you,
And your whispering back that you love him too.
Then comes a kiss and a promise to wait,
Knowing the parole board holds his fate.
It’s extremely painful letting him go
while dying inside from needing him so.
Watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
Standing alone with his hopes, dreams, and fears
although you’re near, but so far away,
his love for you grows with each passing day,
Loving a convict isn’t much fun,
but it’s worth the wait when his time is done
Remember he’s lonely and sad from being away
and he’s thinking of you every single day,
So love him, miss him and please tell him so
because if you really love him, he desperately needs to know….
