The Things That I love and Hate

By Amanda A.
Grade 11, Michigan

I love being with my man.
Cuddling kissing and holding his hand.
I love is when he says, ''I love you.''
I smile and say, ''I love you too.''
What more is there to do?

I hate when he leaves me.
I hate that he went away.
But what can I really say?
look at what he has now become.
A soldier and the best man he can be.

I hate not knowing what he is doing.
Or even if he is okay.
I know that I have to trust him.
But he is just so far away.

I love him and I miss him.
And I cant wait for him to come home.
I really do miss you honey...
Can you please please just come home?
