Love Letter To My Soldier

My dearest Edward,
I admit things could be better.
While you've been away,
It gets colder by the day.
Terror creeps upon me as I lie in our bed,
When it does I remember what you said...
"Think of me and remember I love you,
Look in your heart where my love is true...
Know that if I could I would hold you and never let go,
Baby, I'm going to miss you so."
As I lie here feeling our son kick in my womb,
I know he will make his entrance soon.
One day soon we will be in your arms safe and sound,
And we will thank God for the love we have found.
So whilst you are away at war,
On distant shores...
I will miss you daily,
And pray incessantly... that you come home safely.
So until you are with us I will play the soldiers wife,
And go on in strife.
I hope you will be home soon,
To hold us in the light of the waning moon.
All my love until you are here with me,

Love Always,

The style of poem is 'rhyme', and you have a beautiful rhyme scheme. You know, there are a number of web sites with touching letters from wives to their soldier husbands in past wars. The Civil War letters are quiet gripping. Southern women had to make a living in an agrarian society without the much needed manpower. Now back to your poem. Your heartfelt love is beautifully expressed. May your husband shortly return to your faithful arms!
