A Soldiers Son
(Father Son Poems)
You couldn’t be there for my birth
and you’ll miss me as I grow ..
I’d give anything to have you here
but that I’m sure you know.
I may not get to see your face
as much as I would like ..
but your voice is something I won’t forget
Mommy plays it for me every night.
We only had a little time
to spend as father and son ..
but I know you wouldn’t have left
if you weren’t fighting for everyone.
So I’ll take care of mommy
and wait till you come home ..
I can’t wait to pick you up
and show you how much I’ve grown!
Daddy don’t you worry
keep doing what you do ..
Mommy and I are OK
we couldn’t be more proud of you.
