My Family, My American Dream

If I took the time to list, all my loves in life.
I'd start with my moments, with my kids and wife.

Summers come and summers go,
they seem to move too fast.

Life with them is so complete,
and I thank God for my past.

Sometimes when I'm at work,
and things are really slow.

I'll think of them at home,
and wish that I could go.

I'll watch them when they're sleeping,
hold them when they cry.

I'll always be there for them,
until the day I die.

I like to make them smile,
their laughter warms my heart.

I don't know what I would do,
if we were torn apart.

They're my greatest inspiration,
in everything I do.

I've but three words for them,
and that is I love you.

My life with them is like a rainbow,
arched high above a stream

My life with them is my version
Of living the American Dream

My wife and I have 3 beautiful children one of them my son we nearly lost about a year ago. I am currently in Iraq assisting the US Military as a civilian and I think that sums up how I feel about my family because I miss them every single day.
