but yours my son, has just begun.
As we finish up on this roller coaster of a ride
You will soon begin a new kind of ride.
You left a lost young lad,
who didn't know which way to go
but now I see you returning
a fine young man. who knows what
direction to go.
I can see within your letters
the pride you now hold. The pride
of becoming a United States Marine!
Go and serve your country now my son,
as a Marine's job is never done
Though as your Mother,
I will never stop worrying about you,
or wonder what you might be doing?
Are you hungry?
or even hurt?
I pray each and every day until I can see your handsome face
Go and do what needs to be done
then come back home safely to all that hold you dear.
You will always be within my heart even though we will now be apart.
I am so very proud of you my son, because
of what you have gone and done.
You're a Marine now my son!
Very Proud mom of Mike
