I wait alone, your side of the bed empty, but filled with your scent.
I smother myself deep inside you waiting to hear your voice one more time.
I still wait staring at the monitor, filled with heavy thoughts.
What are you doing?
Where are you?
The unrealness of it all is I’m a Soldier too “I Know” that makes it worse……
You’re here with me, but not…
I feel you, but I can’t touch you….
Joy and Pain….
I’m Alone, buried in your smell again.
