A Poem About Our Marines...

hey girlies, 

i randomly came across this peom someone wrote and wanted to share with you all. it explains everything we're going through. let me know what you think.



"Loving a Marine isn't always what they say,
And loving him is a high price to pay.
It's mostly loving with nothing to hold,
It's being young yet feeling so old.

It's having him whispering his love to you,
It's whispering back that you love him too.
To seal this promise of love.

Reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,
While you're dying inside from wanting him so.
Watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
Standing alone with hopes, dreams, and fears.

It's sending a letter with the stamp upside-down,
To a far away lover in a far away town.
It's going to church to kneel and pray,
And really meaning every word you say.

So though you know he's far away,
Just keep on loving him more each day.
Being in love will merit your dreams,
And thoughts of Heaven where love's light gleams

Days go by and no mail for a spell,
You wait for some word to hear that he's well.
A letter arrives and your heart fills with joy,
You're like a child with a shiny new toy.

With fingers trembling, heart beating fast,
You read it again from first word to last.
He's doing well and misses you so,
It's filled with the love you wanted to know.

Weeks are now months, months seem like years,
You're waiting for the day you'll have no more fears.
Time passed slowly, but gone very fast,
You're barely aware that it's here till it's past.

Yes, loving a Marine brings bitterness and tears,
Loneliness, sadness and despondent ears.
Loving a Marine isn't much fun,
But it's well worth the price when his time is done.

Remember he is thinking of you every day,
He's sad and lonely from being away.
So love him, miss him and cherish your dreams,
And always be proud to love your Marine.
