As months go by;
It's more time i'm away from you.
Tear stained letters-
Because I just couldn't stop.
I tried to be strong;
But hearing your words-
Even if only on paper..
It makes me weak.
I fall to the ground;
I need you;
I miss you.
I can't wait until you're finally home.
I know it's not your fault;
And I know if you could-
You'd be here.
And as I count down the days until you should return;
I pray you'll come back as you left;
You're a brave man.
You stand up for what you believe;
and you believe in what you fight for.
You stand under that raised American Flag-
Knowing today may be your last.
Times get hard;
And you watch as blood flies through the open air.
I don't know how you do it;
But I am proud that you do.
Just always remember that I love you.
I lay awake;
Holding your pillow..
Awaiting your arrival;
Even though I know it could be a while.
I sit under the stars;
Wondering if you are too.
And I wish on every ounce of hope;
that my brave soldier-
will return to me again.
