The San Antonio Airport
I remember the day we met like it was yesterday. What you were wearing, how you looked, what you smelled like, how nervous I was, how excited I was to finally touch you, to look at you. The rush of emotions, the first words spoken, what your kiss tasted like, how happy I was to finally meet you.
The first time I touched you, my legs wanted to crumble beneath me. I remember wrapping my arms around you and asking you not to let me go. I didn't know what was going to happen next, I just knew that I wanted that moment to last forever.
Looking back on it now, it's crazy how it was only You and I. I don't even know what happened to the FedEx guy, everyone else disappeared when I saw you. I didn't hear anything but your voice, I didn't see anyone other than you.
The Elevator and the ride to billeting. I remember not being able to look at you. Not because I didn't want to, but because I didn't want to gawk. You were (and are) so beautiful and I couldn't believe that I was actually looking at you in person instead of in pictures. I remember grabbing your hand the first time in your Jeep, and how it fit perfectly in mine.
There is so much I will never forget about that first weekend with you. I remember how relaxed I was and how comfortable I was around you. How perfect I felt laying in bed next to you and how easy it was to look in your eyes and tell you "I love you." Making love with you, (then and now) I cannot even describe it, the emotion and love behind it. Every inch of my body was 10 times more sensitive, my legs and hands were shaking, I could hardly breathe...it was perfect.
I remember sitting on the floor next to the bathroom area, watching you straighten your hair and put on your makeup. I wanted to memorize every detail of your face, your body, your life. I wanted to be able to bring it back with me to California. I wanted to meet your friends, go to your favorite bars, see what your apartment looked like...everything. I wanted to be able to close my eyes when I got back home and see, taste, smell and feel everything as if I were still there.
