A Soldiers Life - Poem by louis rams

A soldiers life

Silent tearsI did cry when my true love said good-bye
" they are deploying me to a war zone -
I don't know when I'll be home "
A soldiers life is one of pain, and so many
People are feeling the same.
Yet I will wait cause my love is strong and in my arms
Is where you belong.
In my dreams I see your face in the same familiar place.
That is when you proposed to me underneath the big oak tree.
This is a soldiers life, and I knew this when I became your wife.
You joined to defend this land and I knew this when I took your hand
This child that is on the way, kicks and fights every day
When he hears " this land is our land " play.
A soldiers life is of dedication, and they are here to protect our nation.
It is not done for money or fame, but to protect peoples rights
Under the U.S. name.

    A soldier's life is exceptional and the poem portrays it quite nicely.
    Lover's mutual longing for each other makes it an outstanding picture. Best of Luck. Thanks.
