The letter that won't make it home

Hey my love,
I cant wait for you to read this...
I want to imagine that smile on your face that I miss.
Anyway...I have some good news,
I'm comin home next week.
I can't wait to hold you in my arms again...
to be with you my love, my best friend.
I have seen so much terrible things over here,
I have also lost a few friends as well.
I feel like I did something good,
and I finally get to leave this hell.
I can't wait to get away from all this sand,
sometimes the heat is almost to much to bare...
almost two years in this desert land,
but home now feels so near.
I want you to know...
I'm going to try my hardest,
to be who I was before I left.
It might be hard for me at first...
I know we'll be okay,
because I love you until my dying breath.
I have to cut this letter short....
............tell my family that I said hi.
I love you so damn much....
but I have to say goodb!!!!!...................
