Left Behind 'A Soldiers Wife' - Poem by mary catherine

Here i sit
All night alone
Thinking of you
Wishing you we're home
Knowing your day
Has just begun
Your mission, patrol
Whichever one
I dont know what you do over there
The lives you touch
Or if anyone cares
That I sit alone
Each and every night
Without you here
To hold me tight
No one watches over me
But your over there
Keeping us all free
So I'll hold onto wishes
Dreams and Prayers
And the pride for you
And the burdeons you bear
Til one day i can finally see
You at home
Happy and Free
But most of all
Standing next to me

Dedicated to: all of us left behind to carry on without the ones that keep us going in the first place..Keep the faith girls: Their coming home! ! ! !
