Every morning, I feel empty without you by my side,
Counting down the days, until you arrive.
Then it becomes the afternoon, thinking to myself, “Why is time going so slow?”
I know you tell me that distance will make our love grow stronger,
I try to remind myself of this every day, as I look into your photo.
“This day is finally over”, I say to myself as the dark and lonely night gradually moves in.
Some may say, I have tough skin. But, I really don’t think so, for him, I would do anything.
I stand proud besides my man, supporting and loving him through these difficult days,
Forever and always.
As soon as I crawl into my bed, the tears start falling down,
I become weak and heartsick.
Then, I hear an irritating ringing noise coming from under my pillow, and I see a strange phone number on my screen.
“It’s him!!” I say to myself, as I wipe the tears off my face.
He tells me he can’t talk much, and I understand.
During our long talks, he, in some strange way,
senses what I’m feeling, and tells me “Baby, I’m almost here, I love you.”
Smiling, I tell him, “I can’t wait! I love you”
Then he leaves…. I grab a hold of my pillow very tight.
Trying to hold back my tears, repeating to myself “He’s almost here, He’s almost here….”
My mind reassures me that I am strong,
And then I hear his voice again saying,
“Distance will make our love grow stronger.”
This is true, although we’re thousands of miles apart,
I can truthfully say that I can feel it.
I love you soon the Army wont have you I will honey and we will be together
Love you Carlos Cruzpagan
