We're Not Always Perfect...

I almost forgot what I agreed to when I agreed to be your girl. 

I agreed to a hell of a lot more than just to love you with all my heart. 

I agreed to love you,

I agreed to love the Marines even when I may hate them for keeping you from me,

I agreed to willingly separate myself from you for months at a time,

I agreed to sit up at night waiting for a call or a text or something to remind me that you’re still out there- thinking of me,

I agreed to worry about you on the inside but stand tall on the outside,

I agreed to take any of the bullshit naysayers may dish my way,

I agreed to stand up for myself and you and the choices we have made and will make in the future,

I agreed to sleep alone at night without you but to always keep a spot warm and ready for when you return,

I agreed to hide my tears and fears, to be your rock for comfort and support,

I agreed to be your reminder that everything will be ok and we’ll be together again soon.


I’m sorry that I almost forgot these things that I promised you

I furthermore promise to never forget or doubt again

I will stand tall with your strength in my body

I will stand proud with your love in my heart

I will always and forever be your girl
