Missing You Poem

Poem About My Son Being Deployed

My first born son left today, 8/15/14, on deployment with the USMC. The feelings I have are overwhelming. I wanted to put my feelings into words, and I know that other moms and dads share my same thoughts. I think it will touch many lives.

My Marine


Published: August 2014

My Marine so far from home.
Over seas, but not alone.
I hold you close in my thoughts and prayers.
Missing you through all my tears.
Raising you to be a man.
Becoming a Marine
Was not in my plan.
My first born son,
So proud of you.
Proud of all you have been trained to do.
Come home safe,
I need you to,
For missing you is hard to do.
All my love, Mom
