Sing to Me

Sing to Me

Lying there alone at night I stare at the wall and pretend I see your face And I get lost watching your eyes If I listen close, I can almost hear you Whispering, your voice like the sound of drifting off to sleep "stay strong, I'm still here, right beside you" "forget the problems of today and just sing to me" In my almost-dream, I hear them laughing The games, the songs, the simple happiness I can't find here. They speak to me of this girl, that toy, With the kind of gravity only a child can give And I smile despite the deep-down ache. Half a world away I think I can hear them on a Saturday morning The crash and laughter of so
See all

Figured I'd post an update for those who're still active on here. I'm still alive, living in Austin. Let me know if you're still around.
Been a hot minute since I posted anything. Work kills daily. Ready to be on shore duty for a bit.

Yep, this is dull

Currently hanging out on the pier in Aqaba, Jordan. Not the most exciting place I've ever been.

Back in July of '08, when I went into boot camp hon. :)

Now I'm puttering around the Med for a bit before heading home.

How've you been?
Charlie is getting big! It feels like she is a bowling ball that I'm carrying around in my gut.
I didn't know you went to boot camp. I should be a better friend and check in more often.
I have family drama and a handful of close friends down here. I'm happy in San Antonio.
My bosses say that I'm really smart and good at my job, i hope that next year i will be able to get into management.
Though i dont have the money to do so, I am lusting after the IPAD.
Keep me updated.
Send pictures of the kiddos too.
(Samantha is getting so mature. She has boys calling her and is on boyfriend number 3 of this school year. Her fart jokes get all the attention in class and she got her first pet: a beta. 6 years old and more boy crazy than i was at that age.)
