He is so close to me but yet so far away. He is my fiance and my hero and we have been together for 4 years now.
My fiance and I have been apart for some time now. It saddens me to think of how this all came about. It all started about 2 years ago. He has a crazy ex-girlfriend and she won't leave him alone and get on with her life. He wasn't with her for a long time, but he does have two kids with her. She has been extra loopy since he and I got together and got engaged and had a child. Well, let me jump to the point... my fiance is in prison, doing time for saving our son's life. I was four months pregnant and his ex-girlfriend kicked me over and over again, so he pushed her before she could kick me in the stomach again. Later that night, she and I fought. She then told the police, 48 hours later that he did that to her and now he's in prison. I will never forget those words she said to me, "If I can't have him, then I will make sure nobody will." She's wrong though, I stand by my man and I am forever waiting for him. He's my life and my hero.
I was looking through the poems of LovePoetry and I came across the poem Time Be Still
by Dominick Wortham. That made me think of my fiance the day that he got arressted. I was just wishing that time would be still so we could have another hug and another kiss. Just enough time to hear him say those sweet words again to our son as he slept, "I love you my sweet boy. I don't know when I will see you again." Oh! I miss him and I want that time back that we had. I know we will have it soon.
I do, very much think that we will be together. I can't say, "again" 'cause in a way, we aren't apart. We our together every day in each others hearts and dreams at night. It's a long road that we have to walk down but we will be together, in each other arms in 2 years!
For now, I plan to see him every weekend while he is in prison, if I can. I am working and going to be going back to school next year to keep the time passing.
If anyone is ever going through what I am right now, I can only say that, yes it's hard. You'll have lonely nights but stay busy, keep the letters and phone calls going. Just stay strong. There are support websites online to help people with loved ones in prison.
