Whispers in the Wind

I walk the streets

Blinded by all there is to see

Your spot beside me still empty

But I still hear your whispers in the wind

Your words warm my heart as I walk aimlessly into the night

I wonder what you are thinking

What part of the world you’ve been assigned to

How you are being treated by the strangers you have to protect

If you wonder if I’ll still be here when you are lucky enough to come home

I hear your whispers in the wind telling me that you love me

and you’ll soon be home to stay

The stars are shining brightly leading me on my way

To the place we call home

Where I wait for your safe return each and every day

I await the moment when your whispers in the wind

are replaced by your warm and tender voice

and the spot beside me is filled by you

Honor Me

05/27/2013 — Leave a comment

I give my all for those known and unknown to me

Though the reason is not always clear

I do it for my country

I do it to keep us free

I always want to honor those who fought and fight for me

I am your son, I am your daughter

I am your husband, I am your wife

I am you father,I am your mother

I am your protector

Please pray for me.
