My Little Girl


My little girl,
How I wish I had not been shipped out right before your fifth birthday.
How I wish they had sent me home to see you earn your girl scout badge.
How I wish I was not on guard duty when you were getting over 'the love of your life.'
How I wish I was not in a foxhole while your date was picking you up for the prom.
How I wish I could have been at your wedding instead of being in Vietnam.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
