I Found This Thought U Girls Might Like It!! Military Girlfriend Poem!!


I’m a military girlfriend

I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be

I am at the bottom of the chain, I hold no military ID card

I am not a “dependent” or a parent

The man I love may face unspeakable dangers

And I am at the mercy of those who possess

This recognition for news, I understand and accept this

I am a military girlfriend, I have promised to be here

For him upon his return, no matter how long he is away

People may say that im insane for making such a commitment

With no guarantees, but I hold onto our promises

And have faith that he will come home safe to me

I know full well that my love for him fuels him in the worst of times

I am a military girlfriend

There is no ring on my finger to symbolize our commitment

Though I love him no less for it

I hope everyday that he will be able to call

Because a simple 30-second phone call

Can bring the greatest spectrum of emotions

Smiling with tears in my eyes from so much joy and pain

My relationship is based on a brief communication where

“I love you and I’m ok” speaks more than volumes

And gives me strength to keep going

I am a military girlfriend

I take no moment spent together for granted

I hold on to every touch

Caress, kiss, every word I have memorized

The feel of his skin, his smell, the sound of his voice

And I play it over and over again in my head so I will not forget

I cry myself to sleep some nights

Because missing him hurts so badly

But I wake up the next morning

Brush myself off and start a new day

I am a military girlfriend. The events of the next several months/ years hold my life, my love, and my future in the balance

When you watch the news reports, you may walk away

And go about your business relatively unaffected

When I watch the news stories of the war

I do not see nameless soldiers a half a world away

I see individuals who will forever be changed by war

News of every casualty causes me physical pain and deep sadness

I am a military girlfriend. Not a spouse or a family member

When you say you prayers for the husbands and wives,

Mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters,Sons and daughters, please don’t forget me.

This is so true....a piece of paper or a ring wouldnt change the way I love and miss him.

Seems like us Military girlfriends are the only ones that realize what we truly are going through. Just cause we don't have a ring and some wedding pictures doesn't mean we aren't going through the pain of missing them.

Omg I'm crying I love that poem and I'm going trough the samething so I understand.
