Dear, Soldier Boy

Dear, Soldier Boy,
How I miss you so.
I think about you everyday,
And when you're coming home.

Dear, Soldier Boy,
I hope you write back soon.
Tomorrow's Sarah's birthday.
Her party starts at noon.

Dear, Soldier Boy,
I love you more each day.
My love for you grows stronger,
The longer you're away.

Dear, Soldier Boy,
I haven't heard from you at all.
Maybe I will get a letter,
By the time of Fall.

Dear, Soldier Boy,
June 15,2008.
They told me you were wounded,
And they got you help too late.

Dear, Soldier Boy,
How I miss you so.
I think about you everyday,
And why you didn't come back home

    Yeah it sucks that soldiers don't come home and after reading this I finally realize that it harder than I thought it would be or maybe this poem opened my eyes to what I always knew, but didn't want to realize, but anyways this is a good poem. (Report) Reply

    that was so touching not to mention it has a poor taste of music within the lines..but the words were great it gave a flow of shiver to my whole body...i really feel sorry if this young boy was someone close to you (Report) Reply
