We’re both in the army and aren’t supposed to be together because of our rank. Couple that with me receiving orders to move 10 hours away, and I’m sure we thought that whatever we had going was going to end. A week after I left, I jumped in my car and drove back to see him. When I was about 30 minutes away, I couldn’t stop crying. I didn’t realize how much I missed him until that night. I just wanted to tell him I loved him.
Postscript: Now he’s in another country, but our love is as strong as ever. True love can overcome distance, circumstance and time.
