Mourning Poem

I wrote this poem for our fallen heroes, as well as the family heroes who carry on with dignity after their loved one has been laid to rest. My heart goes out to the husbands, wives and children who share the burden of the ultimate sacrifice.

Respects To Love


Published: March 2009

Oh darling, my sweet darling,
today, we left the base.
I'm sad and I am lonely
and I ache to see your face.

I know you've done your duty
I know I've done mine too,
but neither of us expected
that I'd be living without you.

They tell me have faith in Jesus,
they tell me have faith in love
but the only thing I'm sure of
is that you're watching from above.

I think about your last days
and the last time that we shared
and I think about our babies
and I hate that I'm so scared.

I hope that they'll remember you
and time is never kind,
but I swear I'll keep my promise
and you'll never be left behind.

If you're listening, if you hear me
know our love will never end;
You'll live on in my heart forever
And someday, we'll meet again.
