A poem not only in honor of our troops, but for the women who support them.
She sends up a nightly prayer,
to the good Lord up above.
to keep her husband safe,
to let him feel her love.
While he is thousands of miles away,
in some unknown foreign land.
Fighting for her freedoms,
making his own stand.

He keeps her picture in his pocket,
he keeps her memory in his heart.
And he knows its all that keeps him going,
when the days are looking dark.
He does it all for her,
all the fighting and the hate.
he does it all for her,
just to keep her safe.

She wants only to see him again,
but knows that she must wait.
But she cant help but feel terrified,
that he will meet with his fate.

If he dies before he can return,
he'll miss all the things that were.
He wishes only that she knows,
he did it all for her.
