Song Memory: My fiancé, Nick, and I are in a long distance relationship. He is deployed with the Air Force, and I’m here in the States waiting for him to come home. One of the first times I heard this song, I was at work, humming along with the radio, when the lyrics struck a chord (pun totally intended). “Hold on, to me as we go/As we roll down this unfamiliar road/And although this wave is stringing us along/Just know you’re not alone/Cause I’m going to make this place your home” This song helped reinforce the fact that it doesn’t matter in the long run that we are apart for now, no matter what is going on abroad or here at home, we will work through anything we need to be with each other. What matters is that we are always thinking of each other and in each others heart. And we will both be there for each other no matter what, and when he does finally come home next year, all the waiting will have been worth it and we will be that much stronger together.
