38 minutes ago . . .

38 minutes ago Eric left us at the airport

He won't be back for a long, long time.

24 minutes ago I carried a sleeping baby in from the car,

Eric's shoes are exactly where he left them by the door,

His pillow still crumpled and slept on,

his wet towel still on the bathroom floor,

the water bottle he drank from this morning still on the kitchen counter,

but my husband is gone.

He left me a piece of his heart, he told me . . . so that hopefully I'll be able to put his shoes back in the closet, make the bed, and wash that dang towel. I miss you already, Soldier, I miss you already.
