Last week my fiance left for Afghanistan and I have been having kind of a hard time with it. We have been together now for almost nine months and the longest we have gone without talking to eachother is maybe about five hours..we are always together, we're best friends. The night before he left he really did something that just melted my heart. He took me out to the river walk where we got engaged and he put "I wont give up" by Jason Meraz (our song) and we danced. Ive always known how much I loved him but in that moment I fell even more completely in love with him. He had such a kind heart and is so faithful to me and my needs. I know that during this next year I am going to be ok. Ive been praying every day for God to give me peace and he has already been answering my prayers. I worry less and less each day. God has also provided so many oportunites for the two of us to talk on the phone and skype. More so than I thought would be possible for the first few months. God handpicked us for one another and through his grace he is going to get us through this next year.
When I look into your eyes it's like watching the night sky or a beautiful sunrise there's so much they hold. and just like then old start I see that you've come so far to by right where you are how old is your soul?
I won't give up on us even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up.
and when you're needing your space to do some navigating I'll be here patiently waiting to see what you find.
'Cause even the stars they burn some even fall to the earth. We've got a lot to learn God knonws we're worth it. No, I won't give up.
I don't wanna be somone who walks away so easily I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make. Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake and in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend for us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn. We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not and who I am.
I won't give up on us even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up
