This is something I wrote to my son while I was deployed.

 

When you cry, I cry. When you hurt, I hurt. 

It’s just me and you; it’s one thing that is true 

When you’re sad, I’m sad, when you’re down, I’m down. 

Our love is one thing that won’t budge. 

 

From day one, things got spun. I knew that everything was going to change; nothing was going to be the same. The feelings I had, knowing that I was going to be your dad. I couldn’t even hold back the tears, as I get to watch you grow the next few years. Everything I need to teach you, I needed to make sure you grew. I have to make sure you learn, so later on in life you don’t burn. With these different emotions, this just shows how much devotion. 

 

When you cry, I cry. When you hurt, I hurt. 

It’s just me and you; it’s one thing that is true 

When you’re sad, I’m sad, when you’re down, I’m down. 

Our love is one thing that won’t budge. 

 

There is no guide book, and to many places to look. I was really caught by surprise, but I smile when I look in your eyes. There is no way to describe this, but with you my life is full of bliss. On the days that I go to work, I can see your face full of hurt. Nothing hurts more then not being there, no matter what you know I care. I will see your smile once more; I can’t wait till I can walk through that door. I wish I was always there; being gone is truly not fair. 

 

When you cry, I cry. When you hurt, I hurt. 

It’s just me and you; it’s one thing that is true 

When you’re sad, I’m sad, when you’re down, I’m down. 

Our love is one thing that won’t budge. 

 

With all the months of pain, you never had anything to gain. I wish I could just freeze time, and then everyday we can shine. I don’t like missing your childhood; I hope you know that everything I do is good. One day you will realize why I am gone, one day I can explain so you know I wasn’t wrong. The pain I see in your eyes is enough for me to truly realize. I still have time to watch you grow, it’s like I already made it to the show. Every time I look into the sky, it makes me wish I could say hi! 

 

When you cry, I cry. When you hurt, I hurt. 

It’s just me and you; it’s one thing that is true 

When you’re sad, I’m sad, when you’re down, I’m down. 

Our love is one thing that won’t budge. 

 

There is one thing I know for a fact, No matter what I have your back. You are my sun on a gloomy day, my stars on a black night. Even on the days where you’re bad and make me mad, there is nothing that will change that I am your dad. My job is to always teach you what’s right and wrong, I need to make sure you grow into the person you are meant to be. When you fall, I will pick you up. When you succeed, I will cheer. As long as you know that I will and always love you. \"\"
