His dream is to be deployed.
Yet his love for me, makes him want to stay.
I can't ask that of him so I wish him fare well,
in hopes that he will come back to see me soon.

Traveling to a far distant and unfamiliar land.
My picture keeps his heart true and lets him know
someone is back home waiting for his glorious return.

The promise of marriage keeps me strong.
Yet I know the military will always come before me.
That is the life of an army wife.

Deployment, leaving those closest to you.
Saying goodbye, taking the chance of never returning.
Life with out love and comfort.

Thank You

I am a new army wife, I will be married a year this October, unfortunatly, my husband is getting ready to be deployed to Iraq for a year within the next two weeks, and I have been breaking down slowly but surely, and I just came across your poem, and thank you because that just proved to me that I am not alone and it gave me so much hope!!!

Thanks to all

Terrie and Jamie,
Thank you for your comments. Terrie thank you for your prayers and thoughts. Jamie keep faith girl, its hard but well worth it in the end. Just remember, love keeps you strong and will bring him home. Dont ever give up, when you feel you cant go on, look at the sun or at night look at the stars and think that he is there looking up too thinking of you. May god bless you all.
