waiting on airplanes




I can't remember a day since I met you 
that we didn't talk

Oceans and miles were never very good at keeping us apart 
Because my head is always wrapped up in you 

You're coming home, and we've never been closer,
But I'm tasting the southern sun 
And it feels like you're on the dark side of the moon

I'm racing you home and counting the moments 
The pulses of my wild wind heart until I see the text 
That you're back on American soil 

i haven't gone this long without talking to you since I met you
yet you fill my mind
yet you are closer than ever
yet you are finally
finally
finally
Coming home. 

You're coming home

In honor of fourth of July weekend, I thought I would share a little snippet of poetry I wrote when my husband was coming home from deployment, and I was on my way home from a trip-- and I was going out of my mind with excitement. Blessed by our freedom and blessed by those who protect it. <3 I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday weekend!



lOVE,
kATE

p.s. The ARCs are OUT! So if you are on the launch team... I hope you are enjoying the read! I can't even describe how much the positive feedback means to me. It's beyond anything. You guys are wonderful. Release date coming soon. 

p.s.s. HUGE shout-out to my beautiful sister for the two gems above!
