This morning my world slipped away
Now I have so much left to say
As we hugged our last hug, and kissed our last kiss
Everything flooded into my mind that I will miss
Your body next to mine as we slept, your warm embrace
You whispering "I Love You" with a smile across your face
Even as my heart was breaking in half
As always you managed to make me laugh
God will carry us through this difficult time apart
For now just know that you will always carry my heart
As you serve our country I couldn't be prouder
Before I met you when it came to love I was a doubter
The memories we made I cherish, the time we had together was the best in my
Now I look forward to the day when we will become husband and wife
