when you left you left a kiss on my lips
it lingered for a little l-o-n-g-e-r
a little longer then i thought it would
i'm trying not to think of you
for it only brings me heartache
16 months is a long time
a year and half of my life
without you standing next to me
i cannot do the things that i once did
because i did those things with you
the heat only brings thoughts,
images of gunfire and yelling
tents without AC in 100+ heat
radios constantly giving orders
put your boots on and walk away
your letters portray death and sadness
god i hope you'll be alright
i stumble and fall throughout my day
the streets are lonely
even they miss you
i scream at night
your face permanantly imprinted in my mind
i cry at noon
the phone hasn't rung in a week
i'm paralized in the morning
i can't bring myself to get out of bed
i smile little and laugh never
my everything is nothing with out you
my last package had extra sunscreen
your freckles make you burn easier
i packed more stamps
maybe you ran out...?
maybe that's why i haven't gotten a letter
i wrote that i would wait for you forever
even if you didn't come home.
