I'd rather miss you

Our mailboxes stand together

At the end of my concrete drive

On Tuesdays and some Thursdays

We both get home at five


The evenings have been peaceful

Since his silver truck's been gone

She brings home too much ice cream

And spends all her time alone


Tonight he holds his baseball cap

Under the light of her front door

Without his arrogant swagger

He's begging back once more


Just when I was certain

On how this all would end

She says "I'd rather miss you

Than watch you leave again"

"I'd rather miss you

Than watch you leave again"


Every time he left her

She struggled every day

I saw how hard she tried

And why she had to say...


"I'd rather miss you than

Watch you leave again"
