Missing You The wind whispers and I focus my heart to hear. Are you sending me your words? Your thoughts? I can think of nothing…but you. My days are empty, and the clock moves slowly, if not backward in reverse, when I am not looking. I hate time. It has never been my friend, It is not now. The big man at the front will not tell me where you are. He is cold and wears many colors on his vest. It is okay. The reality is enough. You are safe, as “He” knows your venue, your place. Angels are at your side, “His Love, His Grace”… Prayed accordingly for you. Daily! The first when I wake, the last when I sleep. Swift return my love. Soldiers take chances, but be smart. Be fast, accurate and on the mark. I am waiting, we are here. Come home… We cheer!

Beautifully done. So gorgeous. My daughter was in the Air Force. Enlisted during The Gulf War. Terrified us. She is safe, this poem reminded me to be grateful.

Prayers she is safe always. Our soldiers do not receive sufficient respect for all that they sacrifice, nor that of their families. Ann

Stirring tribute, Ann! So many in this country have forgotten who protects all of our freedoms, as they are too busy protesting "horrible American injustices." How utterly ironic, isn't it. Hats off to you! Best wishes, Gershon

Thank you for your kind words. I try not too, but I get so angry at what is happening. So sad. So many have no idea.(they are on the phone, busy) Like chickens in the slaughter pen, waiting around for their turn...? Wake up, stand tall, or lose, what you have no idea you ever had? Busy they have been earasing us... Hugs and more hugs, they have not won. "In God We Trust". Amen. Have the very best day! Ann

Bless you, Ann, for reminding us how dangerous it is to serve in our military. It must be hard on families who don't know where their loved ones are at any given moment. As you said, God knows where they are. I love this poem! A fave for me. Hugs, Carolyn

i cannot imagine that longing and worry when a loved one is in the service or at war( my ex husband was in the navy but when we met he was done his away at sea tours and there were no wars)...but i thank them all for their service...good write, the reader can feel your emotions through your words... :)
