A Soldier's Wife


She finally has gone home to rest,
Her soul is now cradled in a celestial nest
Long she fought that terrible affliction
With faith, courage and conviction,
Valiantly she fought through all the strife
Like a great warrior who cares not for life,
True to the traditions of a soldier’s wife.

Today she is merged with nature,
Remembered as a fighter of great stature
Mingling with the stardust of many a sun,
Fulfilled and with a life’s work amply done.

She now soars in a universe infinite
A world where there is no day, no night,
A world where there is no time, no space.
And here she floats in endless solace
No more pain and no more strife,
As we sadly recount how nobly she led her life,
After all, she was a soldier’s wife.
