I have a confession to make. I know this comes out of the blue. I know you aren’t expecting it. But I can’t keep it to myself any longer. I have to share it with you. I have tried to find the best way to say it. I hope I have it right. I am just hoping you will understand.
I don’t know when it happened. For that matter, even how. But somewhere along the way, I felt my heart reach out for yours. Maybe it happened when we were not looking. Maybe the last time I dried your tears while your heart wax breaking. Maybe it was one of those times we spent all night talking about our hopes and dreams. Regardless, it happened.
I do not want to make this difficult. I don’t it to be awkward between us. I just want you to know. I feel like my heart would burst if I didn’t at least do that much. Don’t make a decision now. I know the risks. I imagine them each time I try to tell you. But I realized that not telling you would be the biggest risk of all.
I know you have some feelings for me. I’ve seen it in your eyes. I’ve seen the way you look at me when you see other couples around us. I don’t have to be psychic to know how you feel. I feel the same way. I know you are scared. I am absolutely terrified of a life without you. Whether we remain best friends or soul mates, I want to be forever by your side.
I’m not trying to make it hard on you. I just want you to know that I will wait. I will wait until I stop breathing. Then I will wait on the other side. I will wait as long as I need to for you. You are well worth the wait.
Yours no matter what,
(Insert name here)
So far apart
Yet a phone call away
They said it would not work
This long distance relationship
We had no other choice
Our lives went separate ways
But our hearts still clung together
Determined, we decided to try.
No hand to hold
No lips to kiss
But every day I see your picture
The one I keep by our bed
I tuck our children in bed at night
I tell them you are a hero
Honor bound, you risk your life
To make our lives better
You serve our country
You protect us with your life
All I can do is wait at home
And pray for your return
Until then, we lift you up in our prayers
Prayers to keep you safe
Until you can rejoin us
Until our hearts reunite
No better person could I have chosen
To spend the rest of my life
To share the joys and sorrows
To celebrate our life
So keep doing what you must
We will be here when you return
