I Am A Soldiers Woman


Sunny days
Blissful moonlight walks
Delicious dinners by candle light
Heartbreaking goodbyes
Tearful reunions
Desperate Embraces
Stolen kisses

This is the summary of the lives of women
Women whos men wear army greens
Women whos men have been chosen to fight

We know duty comes first
Yet standby them continuously we will
Through the lonely months we wait
Taking care of the home we share
While our soldiers serve and protect
We weep with all our hearts
Praying that the lives in the line of fire will not be taken from us
Minds daydreaming
Wishing we were with our soldiers again
Pacing anxiously by the phone
Waiting to hear the voice of our far away love
Eyes keeping watch
For the mailman to bring news of their progress
Ears strained
Listening for the front door to open and their footsteps approach

The worry is unbearable
But push through we must
For a soldiers woman doesn't stop pushin
Until their soldier does

I am a soldiers woman
A soldiers Bride

I'll push and push
Until the day my soldier walks in that door
And he says'My Lelani, WE can stop pushin, the wait is over.'

I am a soldiers woman

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
