This Was Great, I Got It From Another Millitary Gf And It Meant Alot To Me;

Dear civilian girl,



You complain that your boyfriend has worked late all week and have barely seen him.



-I look forward to the two weeks a year we spend together.



You complain because he doesn't call you enough.



-My heart is thankful for the 15 second phone call I got last Tuesday in the middle of the night!



You whine to your friends about how much you miss him already because he is on a two day trip with his parents.



-I won't see him for another 10 months!



You don't feel like making love tonight because you are too tired.



-We will stay up all night because we don't know when it will be the last time.



Your boyfriend belongs to you.



-Mine belongs to the government.



Your boyfriend is training for his game next weekend.



-My boyfriend is trained to kill.



It's just not practical for you to drive an hour to see him every weekend during school.



-He spends $700 dollars on a plane ticket just to see me 2 days!



You hate hanging up the phone when talking to him.



-My heart breaks because I won't talk to him for another 10 days.



You complain that he doesn't take enough time out of his life for you.



-My man has to get up in the middle of the night to talk with me because of the time difference. He doesn't complain.



Your man is in a bad mood from not sleeping much this week.



-My man ran 10 miles this morning at 4 in the morning and has a full day of

work ahead of him. He's lucky if he gets a few hours of sleep!



Your boyfriend can call in sick when he is tired or not feeling well.



-My man works no matter what!



You don't trust him so you follow him places to see if he is telling the truth.



-I have no choice but to trust him and even then I trust him with my life.



You don't like him talking so sexually with his friends.



-My boyfriend has to chant it in drills.



You check your phone, see you missed a call from him, and decide to call him back when you aren't so busy.



-I see a missed a call and cry, because I don't know when he can call again.



You might save a cute voice message from him.



-I save them all b/c it helps me to remember what his voice sounds like.



Being apart for a month to you seems daunting.



-A month apart for me is a wish that can't come true.



You wouldn't change schools to be close to him.



-I have to move to another country to be with him.



You have every part of him memorized.



-I study pictures so I don't forget what he looks like.



You take your time together for granted.



-We don't!



Your cell phone bill was high this month from talking too much.



-He pays 20 cents a minute to call me… when he CAN call.



You love that fancy necklace he bought you



-I refuse to take his dog tags off, and not a day goes by that I don't have them on...



You say you miss him.



-Times that by 20.



Loving a solider

loving a soldier is a high price to pay,



loving him truly is hard when he's away.



it's being alone with nothing to hold;



it's being young, but feeling old;



it's having him whisper his love for you;



it's whispering back that you love him too.



there comes a kiss and a promise for more,



as his plane slowly rises to soar;



reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,



while your insides are dying from wanting him so,



standing alone with your hopes, dreams, and fears.



it's sending a letter with the stamp upside down,



to a far away love in a far away town.



it's going to church to kneel and pray,



and really meaning the things that you say.



being in love will foster your dreams,



of that far away soldier your mind fairly beams.



days go by, no mail for a spell,



you wait for some word to hear he is well.



then a letter arrives, and your given in,



to open his letter and read it with a grin.



yes, he is well and he misses you so,



it's filled with the love you wanted to know.



weeks are like months, and months are like years,



you wait for the day when you'll have no more fears.



days go by slowly, how many have passed?



yes, loving a soldier brings bitterness and fears,



lonlieness, sadness, and despondent years.



loving a soldier isn't much fun,



but it's worth the price when the battle is won;



and remember he is thinking of you everyday,



he's sad he's lonely while so far away;



so love him and miss him and hold your head high,



be strong and have faith, wipe that tear from your eye.



it's the high price to pay for loving a soldier...



Nobody Said It'd Be Easy. They Just Said It'd Be Worth It.



You don't know me



But I'm the girl who cries every morning.

In hopes every night for his safe return home.

I'm the girl who drags herself out of bed every morning so that he will be proud of her when he comes home.

I'm the girl who lies in bed longing for him to be next to me.

I'm the girl who sits quietly during class because all i can think about is the next moment when he will safely be in my arms again.

You don't know me

But I'm the girl with a million things to say, but none will come out without the thought of him.

I'm the girl who checks my cell phone every 5 seconds

Just to make sure i haven't missed his call.

I'm the girl who stops and stares and wishes for him to return soon each and every time another man in uniform walks by.



What you don't know

Is that I know love on an entirely different level from most.

I know the love that spans time and space; the love that most people are constantly searching for.

I'm one of the girls who waits months for a single kiss;

A kiss that will make the months apart worth every second.

A kiss where everything in the world stops for what seem like an eternity.

You can see it in that person's soul and know that without them life could never be the same.



You tell me I'm too young to be so in love;

I know that love has no age limit.

You tell me i don't even understand what love is.

I tell you i know more love in homecoming than most know in a life time.

You don't know that every time he leaves a part of me goes with him and a part of him stays with me.

You tell me that people change but i tell you,

True love will always remain constant and steady.

You tell me you know how i feel and understand what I'm going through

you have no idea.

What you dont realize is that i understand the true meaning of not only love but of longing and anticipation.



You don't see

But I'm one of the few who gets goose bumps as my little heart fills with pride everytime the national anthem is played.

I'm one of the girls who will stand tall and stay strong on the outside

but I'm dying in the inside.

I'm one of the girls who will make friends with complete strangers for only they can begin to understand what i'm going through.

You don't understand

That i picture his face everywhere i go and that he is with me in everything i do.

You think i don't cry anymore, that i have gotten over it,

What you don't know is that i just hide it better.



You don't know

The feeling the first time you hear the word deployment or the feeling of his hand as it slides out of yours for what could be the last time.

You don't know

What that last hugs or kiss means and how important that goodbye truly is.

I'm the girl you see standing alone in the corner of the airport

Watching quietly out the window with tears rolling down my cheeks.

I'm the girl you see with a disheartened face

Staring silently at the ground.



What you don't know,

Is that I know true love

That no matter what obstacle we have to face,

Our love will live forever (that only we know)



You tell me that you support the troops;

I tell you, I'm in love with one.

I'm one of the silent, but outgoing;

Weak, but strong;

Scared, but grateful.



What you don't see is that he needs me and I need him.



I'm one of those girls: the girls who stand tall behind her soldier.

Stand proud behind her Hero.

Stands strong behind her man.

Watching silently and patiently as he serves and defends our country...



Please Don’t Tell Me



Please don't tell me that you understand

Unless your loved one is fighting for our land

Please don't tell me that you feel my pain

Unless you know the heartache that pours through my veins



Please don't tell me that things will get better

Unless you wait for the mailman for one single letter

Please don't tell me that the holidays will be fine

Unless you will be alone like I will this time



Please don't tell me that I shouldn't cry

Unless you're dealing with the military and can understand why

Please don't tell me that I should be tough

Unless you've been through it and know that it is rough



Please don't tell me that time will go by fast

Unless you're going through this or have in the past

Please don't tell me that my heart will mend

Unless you have ideas for the care packages I send



Please don't tell me to try to live life

Unless you happen to be a military wife

Please don't tell me that things are okay

Unless you are missing someone deployed today

 

 well i hope you girlies enjoyed this, i cried of course but tell me what yall think(:

Good girls(: im glad you liked it and it reminded me of why im in this, and im glad to have all of you to talk too.. Message me ANYTIME you need me i check this like everyday or soo...

this is exactly what i needed today. thank you for posting it. it has the perfect words to describe how i feel about my soldier.

omg i loved it..its so true it gets so annoying to hear a girl crying because her boyfriend didnt stay the night w her when shes going to see them the next day my man is in a hospital in georgia and i cant be there to hold his hand and it just irritates me to the core

Hahah i possted this on my myspace earlier today =]]

I did cry about this one. I saw it first by one of my friends on facebook and I really love this because its so true!

i hate other girls that complian about thier relationships and lovers. they anger me that they have it easy. your just proved my point. its not easy and only the elite women can handle this love. keep strong girls )

soo i def cried through this whole thing..it's the most painful and rewarding love...love that makes you wait.
