The Love Of My Live

He was the love of my life and the relationship lasted 66 years.  I met him at a high school dance in 1939.  We went to college together, then we both joined the army to help win the war in 1943. We were parted by the war and he wwent to foreign countries to fight while I stayed in the United States.  We went home on fulough and had our weedding,  a simple cermony dressed in our uniforms.   Then after a five day honeymooon he was shipped out againand  I didn't see him again for over two years.  But our love survived the war and beifn separated so many times.  He was my one and only love.    But after 66 years he went to a better place where I will meet up with him again some day. 

The End
