I Hope This Helps Ladys....

i found this, it helps me a lot.....i hope it helps u


Everyone hears of the marines wife, her trials, sacrifices, and devoted life.

she is strong, she is brave, and she is loving indeed,

standing by her man in his time of need.


but what of others in a similar situation,

who have made being a marine girlfriend their main occupation?

they suffer many of the same trials and many of the same fears

without the security of future years.


will there be peace or will there be war?

you try to be hopeful but its hard to ignore.

the world seems to be falling apart

when to a marine you have given your heart.


your love runs too deep to escape from it now.

you hope to be together somewhere, somehow,

when his duty is over and your life can begin.

you wonder if it will happen but dont question when.


the many heartbreaks and times you did weep

when he made promises the marines couldnt keep.

but you have learned so much together and come so far.

others warned you not to fall in love but you already are.


his job is ever-changing anve ford takes him far away

you think of him always and pray every day--

for his safety, his courage, and his love for you

that he may remain steadfast, loyal, and true.


nothing is sure and nothing is set in stone...

except that he will leave again and you will be alone,

holding tightly to your dreams of the future together

when you will at last be able to say the word "forever"


tears have become anything but a stranger.

they fall freely in sadness, loneliness, and anger.

but he will never know because you will never tell

you've learned to hide your misery only too well.


a few years? that doesnt sound like so long

the letters and phone calls keep your love going strong

even when they are few and far between,

in them, his love for you can clearly be seen.


so keep your chin up and smile on your face.

he is protecting your freedom and keeping you safe.

his heart is strong and his love is true

and dont ever forget that he is missing you too.
