I Am Missing My Marine

For all those waiting for their United States Marine love to come back home 1,225 People

    If You Have Never Loved A Marine,

    If you have never loved a Marine, then you wouldn’t know how it feels to watch him leave, never knowing when you will see his face again. You wouldn’t know the pain endured and tears shed with every good-bye. You wouldn’t know how it feels to hope and pray he comes back the...

    *Sigh* I just got off the phone with my husband.

    I couldn't hold it together. I miss him so much. This past weekend I was able to go to North Carolina to visit him for the weekend. I've been trying to go ever since he went to ITB. Now that we finally had the chance and said **** it.... I really enjoyed myself. I haven't...

    So today I had to give an introductory speech

    in my public speaking class -- talk about me and touch on some things that mean a lot to me and define/describe who I am. (My sister insisted I should talk about my military background, but I knew that if I started...yeah.) One of the things I talked about was my creative...

    I cried every night for the past week.

    I did a wedding fashion show

    for a friend and took some pictures in some beautiful wedding dresses. My marine boyfriend knew about it, but I sent him pictures of me first before they were posted on facebook with full disclosure about what I was doing. I had so many beautiful dresses that I got to wear and...

    Never have I ever needed him

    as much as I need him right now. And the part that sucks is he's halfway across the world and won't be back for another 7 months... My world feels like it's caving in, and I honestly don't know how I can get through it without him....

    Complicated

    Ok so he isn't mine. All things considered, his love right now is the Marines and only the Marines and I am ok with that. But that doesn't change anything. We met when we were 14. We have been best friends since then. For the first 6 years it was nothing between us but funny...

    Sitting here thinking :/ one of those nights

    where it's really rough because it's getting closer to the holidays and we had so many things planned but we can't do anymore because his leave orders were changed :/ But I reckon it's all part of being with a military man; can't make plans because they won't always hold.

    I'm flying out to California today

    for vacation. On the plane I keep flipping through the pictures I have of my marine on my phone. He's in California as well, but I won't be able to see him. It'll make my vacation very bittersweet.

    We didn't get to talk all weekend,

    which made me really sad. At 11pm Sunday he asked if I was logged into Skype, and we talked for ten minutes. He looked so ragged and tired. I told him that we didn't have to talk and he could just go straight to bed, but he did say he wanted to talk to me because he missed me...
