From "Chaos of War - A Story of Love and Heartache" by Donna Marasco

Chaos of War - A Story of Love and Heartache
The night before Matt leaves for war:

She rested her head on his shoulder, not able to do anything else but stare at him, straining her eyes in the darkness, trying to absorb each minute detail.  She needed to touch him, to feel the body of the man who would be with her only a short while longer.

Carefully, so as not to awaken him, she placed a trembling hand gently on his chest, feeling it rise and fall with his breathing.  She tried to move even closer, wishing she had the power to be absorbed into him so she could be with him at all times, there to protect him.  If anything happened to him, she wanted the same to happen to her, as foolish as it sounded.  Without this incredible man to share her life, her love, there would be no reason to go on.
