There’s nothing like the feeling you get when your eyes meet for the first time.

There’s nothing like feeling his warmth.

There’s nothing like hearing those three words.

There’s nothing like that night with your white dress on the floor and a ring on your finger.

There’s nothing like the moment you hear about a war that nobody wants.

There’s nothing like him being sent away without warning.

There’s nothing like lying awake at night, wondering when your heart will return.

There’s nothing like knowing he’s in danger, while your stuck at home.

There’s nothing like opening the mailbox on a sunny day and seeing that letter.

There’s nothing like that moment you realize that you will never see those eyes, feel his touch, or hear his voice again.

No, there’s nothing like it.

I wrote this after watching the movie "We Were Soldiers". It's an incredible movie, and it's about the Vietnam war. I'm not sure if this is a poem or a short story, so I just posted it as a poem...
