A Soldiers Little Girl - Poem by carlos cortes

A Soldiers little girl that makes his day

With her tiny smile
That makes him wanna stay

A little girl the size of his leg

With beautiful brown eyes
He can see a mile away

A little girl that use to crawl on his lap

With her own determination
She now walks on his screen

A little girl that only made sounds his last stay

With her own words she will say
Will my daddy come back home today
