My Love I miss You,

all I see around me,

it reminds me of you.

Your charming smile,

Your handsome face,

Your funny jokes,

Your sweet disposition.

My Love I miss You,

I saw a program the other night,

dedicated to Veteran's Day.

I held back my tears as I watched them honor the Veterans,

but when I saw your text I could hardly bear it any longer.

It all reminded me of you,

with that small possibility that you could leave

and never return to me.

My Love I miss You,

I just can't help it.

I worry about you,

every minute of every day.

For I can't protect you so far away.

I feel helpless,

as you slowly slip through my fingers.

My Love I miss You,

please don't leave me again.

I feel your hand brush my cheek,

as you tell me that you'll miss me,

but that you can't stay.

It hurts,

but I understand.

I know that you want to be my hero,

and I know that you want to make sure you can take care of me,

and someday our children too,

but I just can't help it.

My Love...

I miss You...
