Saying Goodbye

As he laces up his thick, leather boots,
His broad shoulders release a placid sigh;
He'll join the hundreds more in camo suits
And salute to go-the proper goodbye.
While still at home, we can have his embrace,
But the unspoken truth brings me a tear;
For I know after today, we must face
Living without him for more than a year.
His family keeps saying their goodbyes,
And I will respectfully wait my turn.
But as I meet his beautiful, soft eyes,
I feel my love for him begin to burn.
As he hugs me, my heart fills up with fear:
"Come back to me, I love you" meets his ear.
