Though He's Gone The Pain Remains

I met him almost 5 years ago today. He was a US Marine visiting my hometown on leave. I was a shy high school student who hid behind my "unique" style. It still comes as a shock to me that a handsome marine like him ever noticed a shy, book loving, artistic, goth girl like me. Our meeting was pure chance and resulted in love-at-first-sight. Within 6 months he proposed to me. Our families didn't approve because of the 8 year age difference and tried to break us up. In the end it was his job that took him from me. The last time he shipped out was the last time I ever saw my loving fiancé alive. No one told me he passed til the funeral was over. I've never forgotten him and every day I miss him so much it's like my heart will never heal. RIP my beloved Henry, I miss you so much it hurts.
