I thought I’d add my words to the poem my girl hayleymorganx3 wrote up (also it was her first feature so be sure to give the original a little love). Bold is me and small print is her.
"As I lie here in my bed,
you are already somewhere in dreamland.
God if only you knew where I was, as I toss and turn in my sleep sack attempting to turn off today’s hardships.
My empty arms await for your return.
My body awaits the warmth of your touch.
The army has given you a passion,
it’s taught me patience.
The Army has given me you and nothing is better than knowing that you are mine.
Nights when I tremble in fear are just
“long days” for you.
Days when I can’t hear your voice, are the moments when I question everything but then I remember you’re on the other end waiting so patiently and suddenly things aren’t so bad anymore.
My mind is under construction,
it’s becoming stronger for you.
You’re so much stronger than you give yourself credit for.
As others try to brainwash my thoughts, I just ache for you more.
I don’t have to give it a second thought;
I will always be waiting at home.
No matter what your love will guide me home to you.
Arms wide open just for you
and your tender love.
My mind set on loving you and making sure you don’t have to wait too long. ”
