day 190; operation deployment.
at this very moment, while my husband sits in another country.
thinking about the son he has yet to meet.
and the wife who's touch he has long forgotten.
i put away his new pt shirts, his new pt shorts.
i hang up the new clothes i have gotten him during deployment.
i pick everything up off our bedroom floor.
and once again, stare at his side of the bed where his dogtags hang.
i put his shoes away downstairs.
his new toothbrush placed gently in the holder in our bathroom.
his shower gel and scrubby in the shower.
i wash the last of his clothes that i have worn in the past 6 and a half months.
i put everything in its place.
because time is running out.
my beautiful husband, is coming home. <3
less than fingers and toes.
