 Being his girlfriend isn’t easy, it isn’t like being with another man. He can’t always be home, he can’t do anything about a lot of things. I can’t be mad at him when his hands are tied because it truly is beyond his control. He goes where they tell him to. He goes when they want him to. When he gets back though, he’s with me and that makes it all worth it.
  As his girlfriend I have to put extra effort into showing him that I love him from a distance. I spend time, effort, and money making care packages and preparing letters. I don’t expect anything in return for it, I do it just because I want him to be reminded that he is being thought about when he isn’t here. I don’t want him to forget he is loved, not ever, not for a second. I don’t want him to ever doubt that my heart leaves with him.
 I cry myself to sleep at night every other night, sometimes while I am on the phone with him. I don’t mean to, I can’t help it. I try my best not to do in front of him because I don’t want him to feel at fault for any sadness he didn’t mean to cause because it isn’t his fault he has to be gone. I have learned to forgive him for his mistakes quickly, for there is really nothing more heart breaking than to be mad a man who isn’t even here. I don’t take him for granted because I always know that if I didn’t want to be with him I wouldn’t wait for him the way I do. he is the only man I have ever trusted as much as I do even though he is the only one who is always gone. I trust that he’ll come back to me no matter what it takes. I trust he will not trade my love in for the pretty girls he sees in the different places he visits. I do whatever it takes to prove I am his and his only. If I’m not working he knows I’ll be at home waiting for his text and calls.

I am above all proud of him, inside and out. I love that he is the way he is with me. I love his gentleman like ways and the effort he makes to show me he loves me too. I wear his dog tags around my neck always with a pendant that says I love my marine just so I can jingle them when I’m thinking about him. I’ve never felt safer than in his arms, I am head over heels in his presence. He may be modest to a fault but I’ll never think of him as any less than my hero.
