Loving A Soldier

" Loving A Soldier "

Loving A Soldier is hard to do so many folks will say
losing them in a battle is a price that you could pay
its being so young and happy while also feeling old
Loving A special Soldier takes a heart of gold.

He will softly whisper all his love for you
as you gently say to him that you love him too
you give him a kiss and a promise that you'll wait
knowing it could be a while before another date.

Its such a painful experience as you have to watch him leave
hoping you are not the one thats left alone to grieve
you wave good-bye to him with eyes that are full of tears
left standing all alone with his dreams, his hopes and his fears.

Always together with hearts as one while he is so far away
his growing love is stronger with the passing of each day
Loving A Soldier is hard on you and its not much fun
but in the end its all worthwhile when his service is done.

Remember how he is hurting by having to be away
he is thinking of only you every minute of every day
you truly love your soldier and you always tell him so
its the most important thing that he needs to know.

There is nothing in this living life more important to him than you
defending the freedom for us all is what he has to do
Loving A Soldier is hard to do as many folks will say
he will come back with open arms to me on christmas day...

    Mickey, loving a soldier must be hard, and you surely capture the soldier's soul when you say "defending the freedom for us all is what he has to do." This is an outstanding tribute and I would invite you to read "Mideast Military Madness" or "Lt. Willy on Trial." I worry so about our young men (and women) abroad. Carolyn

    Beautiful...all poems about our soldiers takes center stage with me....so much sacrifice is given every minute of every day, we must always pay special tribute to these brave women, and men in uniform....they volunteered, were not drafted, did not dodge, this is the job they chose...they deserve so much...I admire them all...always, Christy
