the army girlfriend

dear diary,everyone hears of the army wife,
her trials, sacrifices and devoted life,
she is strong, she is brave and she is loving indeed,
standing by her man in his time of need.

but what of others in a similar situation,
who have made being an army girlfriend,
they suffer many of the same trials and fears,
without the security of future years.

will there be peace or will there be war,
you try to be hopeful but it's hard to ignore,
the world seems to be falling apart,
when, to a soldier, you have given your heart.

your love runs too deep to escape from it now,
your hope to be together somewhere, somehow,
when his duty is over and your life can begin,
you wonder if it will happen but dont question when.

the many heartbreaks and the times you did weep,
when he made promises the army couldnt keep,
but you have learned so much together and come so far,
others warned you not to fall in love but you already are.

his job is ever-changing and takes him far away,
you think of him always and pray every day,
for his safety, his courage and his love for you,
that he remain steadfast, loyal and ever true.

nothing is sure and nothing is set in store,
except that he will leave again and you will be alone,
holding tightly to your dreams of future together,
when you will at last be able to say the word forever.

tears have become anything but a stranger,
they fall freely in sadness, loneliness and anger,
but he will never know because you will never tell,
you've learned to hide your misery only too well.

a few years, that doesnt sound like so long,
the letters and phone calls keep your love going strong,
even when they are few and far between,
in them, his love for you can clearly be seen,

so keep your chin up and smile on your face,
he is protecting your freedom and keeping you safe,
his heart is strong and his love is true,
and dont ever forget that he is missing you too.

yours truly,
