Returning home

I have waited a year for your return
Its getting closer
Im scared
Things have changed so much
You have seen things, People should not have to experience
You set your life aside to defend our country
We are like strangers 
Learning how to be a family again
The struggle will be great
But we have made it 13 years
Together we can do anything
