Veterans Day... remembering
My Daddys Got Your Back
I am a small and precious child,my dads been sent to fight..
The only place I'll see his face,is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days for my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad,but I am proud. My daddy's got your back..
I am a caring mother. My son has gone to war..
My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before.
Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning black.
I may be scared,but I am proud..My son has got your back..
I am a strong and loving wife,with a husband soon to go.
There are times I'm terrified in a way most never know.
I bite my lip,and force a smile as I watch my husband pack..
My heart may break,but I am proud..My husbands got your back..
I am a soldier..Serving Proudly,standing tall.
I fight for freedom,yours and mine by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing,the thanks it sometimes lacks.
Say a prayer that I'll come home. It's me whose got your back.
I just wanted to remember all my fellow veterans and their families on Veterans Day. It is easy to talk about the war and all that is going on in the world, but the reality of it is for the families and the veteran himself. Today, Chad went with Taylor to her school for a Veterans Day rememberance, she was so proud he was going with her. She tells me that dad goes away to the far away places to keep the bad men away from here... it is amazing what children understand. Thanks Chad for all you do, and to all my friends deployed I wish you a speedy return home, and thanks to all the Veterans who have come and gone.
