My Darling Son is My Hero
A Poem to him, a soldier....
To live so boldly, to dare and overcome
Daily dealings take a path that surprises...saddens
Leaving God to make sense of the total sum
To rise to necessity, giving yourself for us
Yelling commands follow down mazes of mayhem
No hindsight needed, beyond the sandy chaos
To take the moment, and make it count for all
Breathlessly regrouping, searching, finding...capture
Countless suffering desires from the battle torn streets...call
To guide and maneuver, to believe in your own
Giving all that's required, then more, for the mission
Making the most of possibilities for all to go home
To finish there, and turn your heart to hear the sound
Your mother's call, son? Can you now come home?
To the rolling Kentucky hills, to the quiet of a small town
To comfort you in love, to hold you in my arms
Sleeping in silence, waking to a clean slate, clear sky blue day
No rumble of artiliary, just suburban homes, and farms
To the country you've protected, our flag flying high
Just being the All-American, enjoying your life's script
And from your growing years, to San Diego we'll fly.
To you we call, come to all that is your homeland
Land that is gentle green, filled with southern style ways, & from
Land, rocky, with crashing waves, calling the boy to come back as a Man.
I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART, ALWAYS, Mom
