Staying Strong
Author: Tricia


I wake some mornings not wanting to get out of bed.
I know I must but its so hard to do when your not
with me.
With every call and letter you tell me to stay strong.
Some days i wonder what im staying strong for.
Today I found out why I am staying strong.

Staying strong so we can build a future together.
Staying strong to keep you going.
Staying strong because i love you so much.
staying strong because our life together means so much.
Staying strong because that is what I have to do.
Staying strong because we are strong.
Our love is strong,our hearts are strong,
together we stand strong as an army.
Our love will out last all other expectations,
all other doubt of those around us
