One year he says,
That's it no more.
I tell him as my eyes cry,
My heart breaks that,
" That one year will seem like an eternity.
One year of worry,
One year of grief,
One year of loneliness,
One year of fear.
How can you say it's only one year?"
That's when tries to reasure,
" I'll be ok. I can come home for One week if God willing."
That's when I begin to pray,
"Oh lord please keep him safe,
Wrap your strong, warm gentle arms around him,
Protect him from the enemy's wrath,
Let him know he is loved and never alone,
Let him know I will always be here.
Oh lord I beg please just bring home,
alive an well."
That was that we had to say our last good byes and I love yous.
