Our Troops Away at Christmas ~ This is the original poem.
Our Troops Away at Christmas
Family and friends missing their soldiers at Christmas time
Where they should be celebrating together as a family
While some troops spend a lifetime
Serving and spend many holidays away from their loved ones totally.
It’s a great surprise for loved ones when soldiers
Return home for the season
When service officers come home many households allow them to cry for joy on their shoulders
They realize more than most that Jesus is the reason.
Worriers bringing gifts home to surprise their relatives
The presents bring Christmastime happiness
They try to give promises
Of a safe return with peppiness.
