I remember your smile

I remember the Sunday night standing in front of the Foursquare church when you told me you were entering the military.
Your smile was one of pride and excitement as you told me and kissed my cheek. I hadn't been the Air Force a month when you were taken from all your family and friends. I still have the chalk drawing you gave me that night and told me you would be back. God had different plans for you, and I know you went into his loving arms that day.
I still miss you 50 years later. Rest well my dear friend, you'll always be in my memory and live on with fondness.
Mary
