Poetry

Our hearts met

 Our hearts met

Our hearts met before our faces or body did
Endless hours on the phone, hundreds of emails
You told me it wouldn't be easy
But I never realized it would be this hard
I was not unfamiliar with the military life
But this time it is I that is waiting at home
I wanted to be strong for you
I couldn't count the tears I shed
The nightmares that I had of places far away
My body, mind and heart screaming out your name each night
And still through all this I still hold on to you
I still love you
I always have and always will
