To My Marine Man

To My Marine Man
by Kristal Sewell

I never knew how fast time flies
when i was spending it with you
I guess I thought you wouldnt leave
but now I know its true
youre doing something with your life
and we are all so proud
but I cant help but cry cause where you are
cell phones arnt allowed
when you told me you were leaving
you said it wouldnt be for long
but I still miss you every day
every second that you are gone
the day you left snuck up on us
it came way to fast
and the night before you kissed me
I knew we would last
you wrapped your arms around me tight
told me u are doing this for us
I tried so hard to get them to let me stay that night
I went home and though all about you
weve got a great relationship and future
but you know you’re always in my heart
and I am so proud of u for living your dream
even tho it means for a while we’ll be apart
for the next month’s or so I’ll be without you here
and all the things we use to do
so heres alist of things I’ll miss most
and hopefully you will too
I’ll miss calling you on my way home
and spending every weekend together
even long conversations
when I just wanted to sleep
but wanted you to keep talking to hear your voice
mud ridin in the beat up Nissan
telling each other how their day went
how mad nana makes me sometimes
I miss havin u around
the little kisses you’d give me after making out
havin movie nights
just becuase we wanted to spend time next to each other
even tho we’d end up doing other stuff
no talkin on tha phone for hours on end
but thinkin about all this still makes me smile
I’ve heard lookin back on tears would make us one day laugh
and as i do this im not going to lie
I never knew as I looked back today
that our laughs would make me cry
I cant stop looking at our pictures
or reading letters u gave me
and as I cry I also smile
becuase of how good together we are
how happy you make me
so since you’re gone and I’m stuck here
dont forget here I will always be
till December waiting on my Mr.Marine
dont forget about me while you’re gone
you promised to write me too
you’ll me on my mind these next long months
and til they’re over… know I miss and love you.
