What do you think about my creation? : )

When you left I had to say goodbye,

And tried to hold back the tear in my eye.

Its hard to sleep with you not here,

And hard to keep going when you're not near.

I'm hoping time goes by very fast,

I don't know how much longer I can last.

This is the hardest time of my life,

But this is my job - a soldier's wife.

Even though I'm scared, I'm proud of you,

I miss you so bad, and the kids do too.

I wait by the phone just in case you call,

Yet another day & nothing at all.

I'm not the perfect wife, but I try,

I miss you so bad, I can't help but cry.

I still remember the argument we had last,

Please forgive me for things of the past.

  • I'm counting the days til you'll be home,
    And passing the time in writing this poem.
    I cry myself to sleep every single night,
    But soon one day it will be alright.

    I'm waiting for the day I can hug you again,
    I love you so much, you are my best friend.
    I never knew I would hurt as bad as I do,
    But it will all be ok when I get to hold you.

    I think about you each second of the day,
    Hoping and praying that you are ok.
    You are my hero, I'm so proud of you,
    But most of all, I love & miss you.

  • It sounds awesome. I don't have any family members in the military. But, I pray for everyone else that does.
