AWOL but for good reason

This isn’t like most of my other posts, this is a reflection on myself today. My best friend of going on 3 years is a Marine, he’s my best friend, my hero, but also he’s the love of my life.

I’ve scoured the web for days looking for how I want to express the words about this man. So here are a compilation of some and my own words.

“Forever and always in my heart
Nothing shall tear me and my Marine apart.
For he is my hero and my best friend
And I shall love him to the very end.”

“You took an oath,
to serve our country,
mine is to you brave marine,
to wait for you.

Hero to many,
love of my life,
stay strong and always remember,
I’m waiting for you.”

“But lift them up to the Great I AM, I AM, to be protected from their foe

As you journey the globe following many maps
I pray they never have to play that song over you called T.A.P.S.Shhh, A Moment For Our Military”
“I miss you in the morning,
I miss you late at night,
But I know what you are doing
Is good and just and right.
You’re always in my thoughts”
“When I see your name on the caller ID my heart begins to race.
You’re in all that I see and everything I do”
“I wait to see your face again.
to gaze into your eyes and smile.
I see you when I dream at night.
time seems to drag on so slowly
it seems like you will never get here”
“When you need be I’ll be here.
When you can’t sleep I’ll be here to talk to you until you fall asleep.”
It’s been a crazy past few months, seriously crazy, but nothing beats knowing that there’s some love coming to ya from hundreds of miles away.
