Far From Home

Written while I was away on a business trip
~ A Lonely Haiku ~

In my hotel room,
     Hundreds of miles from you;
          Feeling so alone.

It is hard to sleep,
     This room is just too quiet
          Without kids and dogs.

My bed seems so big;
     There's no one to cuddle with
          Or steal my blankets.

No dogs to let out,
     No bedtime stories to read,
          No kisses goodnight.

I can watch T.V.
     Without the Cartoon Network.
          The remote is mine!

Missing all of you,
     I turn on the T.V. set,
          Sigh, and watch cartoons.
