ANOTHER GOOD-BYE

Hello~
I would like you to post this poem on your website. I read many of these poems
each night and it comforts me to know that there is support for all of us missing
our loved ones. This is to my fiance, Nathan, who should be returning home in
October. I miss him and love him very much.

ANOTHER GOOD-BYE

It hurts so bad
As I cry these tears
It feels like you've been gone
For so many years
It seems like long ago
The first time we said good-bye
My heart was so broken
I thought I would die
Seeing you again
Fixed my heart
But now you're leaving
The hurt is about to start
When you held me in your arms
I never wanted you to let go
These "good-byes" are so hard
For both of us, you know
I took for granted
All the times you held me tight
What I wouldn't give
For just one more night
We both know this is best
For the future that we hold
But seeing you go to leave
Turns my heart so cold
So little time
So much to say
I guess I'll hold it in
Until that October Day
Although your miles away
You know my heart is true
I can't wait 'til you come home
To the women that loves you
For: Nathan
Love: Courtney
