Please Dont Go

 wrote this poem for my marine and everyone who has had a loved one leave.

Please Dont Go

I knew eventually you would have to leave

But I wasnt ready.

Tears filled your eyes as you reached for my hand and said,

"Im sorry but I have to leave next week."

Overwhelming sadness filled my heart and tears poured from my eyes.

My lips quivered as I tried to say,

"Please dont go. I need you, I love you."

I could see by the look in his eyes that his heart broke as he watched me cry.

We said nothing more, just hugged and held onto each other for as long as we could.
