Letting Go

 Letting Go

Letting go of you is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

I told you good-bye for the first of many times on June 18.
When you left that day I knew I was beginning the hardest journey ever.
It seemed to take September 14 forever to arrive.
Finally I was sitting at the Parade Deck on Parris Island
I was looking to see your warm and loving face.
When they said "Dismissed", my heart skipped a beat.
I looked for your gorgeous face, Oh God, I see you
All I can do is hold you in my arms, and then I step back to look at you
MY MARINE, My heart was bursting with pride.
I tried my best to hold them back, but the tears came.
That was one of the best days of my life.

The following ten days were precious.
"I love you's" flowed from our mouths every minute.
Trying hard to make our time last, we knew it would end soon
The neverending smiles, kisses so soft and passionate, gazes long and
heartwarming.
I enjoyed every moment I had with you, but I knew you would soon leave again.

The ride was too short.
The pain was so strong.
Everytime I looked at you, my eyes filled with tears.
The closer we got, the more I wanted to hold you and never let you go.
Having to hear you say,"I wish I could stay here with you" filled my heart
with joy and sadness. Joy because you want to be my side always and sadness
because I know that you can't.

We finally arrived and I could see the axiety in you eyes.
I knew it was time to let you go.
We hugged good-bye, I could feel your heart racing, and then you gently
kissed my lips and reminded me that it's only for a liitle while and you'll be
back real soon.
You told me that you loved me and we'd be back in each other's arms again.
Until then you told me to hold my head high and keep my spirits up.
As you turned to walk away, I headed for the car. I couldn't stand to watch
you leave, it's just to hard.
As you walked inside that door, my heart, my soul, my thoughts, and my
prayers, left with you.
You turned around one last time and whispered to me, your final good-bye.

Letting go of you is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
