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 by Family Friend Poems August 2014 with permission of the Author.

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
