Telegram Home: 25 words or less 2013

What would you write home from the war if you had only 25 words or less?
I heard someone else had this challenge and thought,
‘What would I write?” I’d like to try.

Maybe I’ll also do it in future years to compare how my message would change or stay the same.

Love you forever!
Stick together
You’re stronger than you think
Know God
Don’t disappoint Him
or yourself
You can change
help others
look forward

The light is gone from your windows.

It’s clear that no one’s home.

Once bright and vibrantly full of life,

now a dark, exoskeleton-like stare.

I felt it. The vacancy

left a void inside my heart.

Now the house haunts me

with memories,

as I wait, in vain,

watching for your return.
