This Is To All You Girls
I'm the girl standing behind you at the grocery store eyeing the latest support our troops magnet while flipping through the pages of Cosmo. the look on her face is complacent, and her thoughts are thousands of miles away . on some military base she's only been describe to threw the telephone I am the young girl in the car next to you with the windows rolled down and tears in her eyes , because the local radio station decided to play "letters from home "I am the girl who visits the Marine corps website at odd hours of the night, to find some kind of comfort for that lonesome feeling in the pit of her stomach I'm the girl who will willingly sacrifice her family and friends to follow a man clear across the country I'm the young woman who swells with pride every time she sees her Marine standing tall in his dress blues I'm the girl who spots a marine corps sticker, flag or license plate and feels a deep connection to its owner. I'm the woman who try her hardest to go about her normal day without missing him too much.
I am a united states marine corps girlfriend.
For all you who wake up in the morning, lay there for a few moments, as you wonder where your marine is and what he is doing, for all you who start the count down from the moment he leaves to the moment he is back in your loving arms. for all you who see Marine corps billboards, ads in the paper, or commercials on TV and next notice tears rolling down your cheeks, for ALL the times we sleep without phones on the loudest possible volume waiting for a call that might come in, for all the time we roll our eyes at the girls who complain because they haven't seen their man in a whole week, for every time we hears our marines name mentioned out loud, and are momentarily frozen in the last time you held each other. we may feel weak inside but on the outside we are strong. sometimes we just want to crawl in bed and sleep until our marine comes home, but instead we get up and go on with our daily routine with our marine in our hearts. we put one foot in front of the other and stay strong . we are strong and we are proud. we have more love in our hearts then we ever thought possible. we are thankful for out men and each other we are marine girlfriends fiancé and wives, and we lean on each other. together we are strong and we will help each other survive. we are the women that love United States Marines.
