Here's Goodbye to my U.S. Marine...

One last hug and kiss before you go. You walk away while my tears flow. I just want to grab you one last time. I know this hill is going to be tough to climb. I can't believe it's been over two months since you've left. When I was crying and gasping for my last breath. I was proud watching you walk away. While you're working to become a United States Marine, I'm missing you every day. Reading your first letter made my heart drop. As I read along, the tears just wouldn't stop. Not having you here seems so unreal. It's hard to explain the way I feel. All I know is that I want you home. I would do anything even just to talk to you on the phone. It's unbearable to not have you by my side. It's heartbreaking to not kiss you every night. When I need to vent to someone, I go to call you, but then I realize you're not here. It makes my world seem so unclear. This journey is hard, but I've realized that I can't imagine my life without you. If you weren't mine, it would be hard to continue. The way you take care of me, the ways you look at me, and your way with words... I love it so much that it almost hurts. You're the greatest person I have ever met in my life. I would forever be honored if someday I become your wife. Our love has great flame and great strength. I will love you for longer than my life's greatest length. Until our last "I love you" that's whispered under our last breath, forever and beyond our final rest.
