July 30 We Said, "our Goodbyes"

On July 30 at 6:30 A.M. was the last time I've seen, hugged, and kissed my boyfriend before he left for basic training to Fort Jackson, SC. I had to rush to the car because I could feel the tears about to pour down my face. We both knew that this time was going to come but, we didn't think it would come this fast. We didn't start to date until June 29 but, we had been friends for like a year and half before we started to date. We always said how it felt like we've been together for years. After a little bit of time we had fallin in love with each other. He is my bestfriend/boyfriend and wouldn't want to have it any other way. He always told me, "Thank you" out of nowhere and I would ask why what did I do? He said, "Just thank you, you know what you did" eventually I would just have to say, "okey dokey I don't know what I do but, your welcome." At first when he left we had a whole bunch of contact because their flight was delayed and they had to stay the night in DC. He called me every time he got off the plane and right before the bus was there to take them to reception. Then while he was at reception and called/texted me whatever chance he could. Then Aug 3 at 6:00 A.M. was the last text I got from him saying, "IMY". For two weeks or so I hadn't heard from him and I was so depressed. I would cry all the time and write on his facebook wall everyday telling him I missed him. Then on a Monday out of nowhere when I needed it the most I had gotten my first letter from him. I was so freaking happy I was screaming and running everywhere. He said he was doing fireguard and it was his first time being able to write to somebody. Then a week later I got another letter from him. Before that I was sending him letters three times a week. But, it seemed like he hasn't been getting mine but, I read that it took them two weeks from the day of reception to start to receiving letters. Then, I was getting letters almost every day until recently everybody's amount of letters have decreased. But, in three weeks I get to see my boyfriend again and I can't wait!!! Then, I have to do this all over again for 14 weeks but, atleast he gets to come home for Christmas, yay! The sad thing is that theres an 80% chance he'll be deployed to Afganistan after AIT :( that's the worst news I have ever gotten in my whole life. Gosh, the life of being an Army girlfriend is hard but, I am strong and I will never leave his side ever. No matter what I won't give up on us.
I won't give up on us
Even when the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
