An Maintainers Wife's Goodbye

An Maintainers Wife's Goodbye

I am an Air Force Wife
I am a Maintainer's Wife
I am proud of the man I married

3x a year I say goodbye
3x a year I try not to cry
3x a year I sadly say "come back soon, and see you later"

60 days at a time I sleep alone
60 days at a time I keep our home
60 days at a time I wait to see my man

I say goodbye as he departs
I say I love you and keep me in your heart
I say God Please watch over that man

Another sleepless night
Another tear to fight
Another empty pillow on my bed

But as they say here in Grand Forks
As another wife to me retorts
SUCH IS THE LIFE OF A MAINTINENCE WIFE

~Lill~


I am a strong & loving wife w/ a husband who has to go. There are times
Im terrified in a way most never know. I bite my lip and force a smile as
I watch my husband pack. My heart may break but I am proud my
HUSBAND'S got your back USAF ALL THE WAY
