Long Distance Love Poem

I wrote this poem for my boyfriend who is currently serving in Afghan

My Gorgeous Handsome Soldier

© Beki Coxon
Today my heart is aching
For a man that's far away
I would give anything to hold him
And any ransom I would pay
I find my mind just wanders
To a sandy barren hell
And pray that my loving thoughts
Find my soldier safe and well
Each night before I go to bed
I look up to the skies
And the moon brings me comfort
As my tears brim in my eyes
Despite the miles between us
We still share the stars and sun
So I gaze upon them often
It helps me know we are still one
So as I lie down on my pillow
I close my eyes and think of you
Not only in my waking moments
But you are in all my dreams too
My gorgeous handsome soldier
I love you with all my heart
And the hardest thing I've ever done
Is have to accept we had to part
But our love is so much stronger
Than any force I've ever known
In the short time we've been together
It's amazing how much it's grown
So until we are reunited 
Please stay safe and strong
My heart is yours forever
With you is where it belongs
Think about me often
My gorgeous handsome man
To wait for you forever
Is my battle plan
