My Love was Killed in Iraq

I was with A for three years before we broke up. We were both young and needed to get our heads screwed on straight. He moved back to California and I stayed on the East Coast. We talked often, but always as deeply caring friends, (though we both knew we loved each other).

Three months after we broke up he called and told me he joined the army. He was deployed to Iraq and just four months ago I learned he had been killed in active combat. I think a part of me died that day too. Sadly, I was unable to go to his funeral, and hope to get out to his gavesite sometime soon to say my final good-bye.

In an even more heart-wrenching twist, three weeks after the funeral I recieved a letter that he had sent from Iraq. I haven't been able to bring myself to open it. Right now, it just sits neatly in a drawer by my bed. One day, when I'm ready, I'll open it.

The truth is, being with him, makes me believe in Love and I hope to experience it again.
