Letters to My Soldier
My Dearest Husband,
Words can not express how much I am missing you right now. It has been a week since the Army has taken you away from me temporarily. I keep telling myself that this year will go by real quick, but in reality it is not fast enough. It breaks my heart that I don't know where you are and nor will I find out till you get to your final destination. It seem like I have been awake for centuries, I have not been able to sleep nor concentrate without you. I come home from work and look for your, but you are no where to be found. At night, I look at the moon knowing that no matter where you are looking at the exact same moon and possibly at the exact same time.
I have worn your Army shirt to bed every night because the smell of you still lingers it gives me ease at night because it feels like you are laying right next to me; and even though it is really cold in the house I still turn the fan on at night because it reminds me of how cold you like our bedroom.
I never got the chance to tell you how much I Loved You before you left on your year long tour, but I never did say goodbye. Goodbye means forever and you will come home to me. I can't wait to hear from you so that I can hear your voice, so that my mind will be at ease knowing that you are safe. I promise that I will pray everyday for your safety, and that god will ease your mind. I love you always and forever.
Forever and Ever,
