Treasure Island

Courtney Lane

(May 10,1986 / Kinston, North Carolina)

My Husband, My Soldier, My Hero, My Friend


When its late at night
And I am all alone
I look up at the sky
And remember you are gone

Gone from this place
Where I am at now
Gone to a place
That I disavow

It’s hot and sandy
I never want to go
It’s far and distant
I will never fully know

When I get a call
Few and far between
You have to watch what you say
For reasons left unseen

I don’t know what you’re doing
Or where you are at.
I don’t know who your with
Are you somewhere in combat?

I want you here with me
I want you by my side
I want you for my self
This feeling I will not hide

There is so much you are missing
With our little girl
You’ve never even seen
Her cute little curl

Somewhere in Iraq
Fighting in their war
Is my loving husband
Of whom I most adore

Months go by
Time fades away
My love grows stronger
Each and everyday

My husband, my soldier
My hero, my friend
I love you right now
I love you till the end

Before we even know it
You will be home
In this place together
We will forever roam

My husband, my soldier
My hero, my friend
You and me together
Our love will transcend

DEDICATED TO SGT DAVID LANE, IRAQ 05-06.

    Hey Hun,
    This touched me so much. I dont have completely the same situation. My man is stationed in another state. We have been friends before we dated, so leaving was never this hard. He's leaving for Guam soon. My daughter is soooo attatched to him, and he's not her biological father. How do you deal with it? I am encouraged by your strength! (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
