...when I feel like I can hardly breathe because I miss you so...
...when all I long for is just to hold your hand again
...when I look at pictures of us together and try to tell myself it won't be long
...when I desperately want to believe it won't be long til you're home, but it still feels like eternity
...when I don't want to just tell you about a moment that happened, I want you to be here to experience it with us
...when I get tired of explaining to people that yes, I'm married, even though some friends may have never met you
...when I'm tired of the waiting and the countdown and I just want our homecoming to be here
...when I want to laugh with you, cry with you, be with you.
Make no mistake - deployment is hard.
