So My husband Has recently joined the Army on april 3rd he left for Basic training. So far I don't have contact with him. Probably not until AIT. I know it's only 7 months lol. He and I have not ever been apart. We've been together since I was 14. So being without him has been a challenge. Enjoy.

Last Day

 

I sit there day by day,

Trying not to count,

Trying to forget,

I know you'll be back, no regrets.

You're doing this for a good cause,

No reason to fret.

 

The Army is lucky to have you,

Your strength is true,

But my heart breaks,

The longer I am without you.

 

I notice the sun going down,

And I start to panic,

My insides boiling,

My heart frantic.

 

It's when I come to realize,

You're no longer here,

Oh great, here comes the tears.

 

I go to brush my teeth,

To find my brush alone,

I lay down in our bed,

That once was so warm,

To be so cold.

 

I try to reason with myself,

It's only seven months,

It's not forever.

But my heart doesn't listen,

And begins to shatter.

 

I'm trying to be supporitve,

I try to reassure our babies,

They don't understand,

Where is their daddy?

 

Our daughter cries out,

Who is only one.

Daddy! Crying over and over,

Wondering where he has gone.

 

Our three year old son,

Doesn't understand where he has gone,

Walks around looking for him,

As if playing hide and seek all along.

 

So I sit there day by day,

Trying not to count,

Trying to forget.

 

So Maybe tomorrow is the last day,

That I am such a wreck.
