To the girl I met in Texas

Twelve hours before deployment
And I see your eyes for the first time
My heart drops and my smile widens
They say everything is bigger in Texas,
But you’re oh so small
And I’m already in love
I spend all night beside you
Though you’re so peaceful when you sleep
You’re a fury when you’re awake
I promise I’ll write to you
And that I’ll return one day
And then I’ll never be gone again
You don’t say anything, you can’t
I go to leave and kiss you goodbye
My last words should be “I love you”
Instead its ” Be good for your mother”
