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

    That was a very nice. I almost cried since I know the feeling of not hearing from your soilder boy. I miss him like crazy and it scarey not knowing whats going on. Its nice to know people can relate. (Report) Reply

    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

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
