The Ones We Love

The Ones We Love
By: J. Moore




To give him your heart is to give him everything
Always aware of the consequences of the path he travels down
He wounds you with his love, without intending to do so
Sleepless nights, tears of joy and sorrow, fear of lose, knowing
distance, longing for him to be more than a voice over the phone lines
all come with loving him.
It's the price you pay for the dreams he lives, the defender of a
nation, the protector of the flag
Mothers, wives, sweethearts, and loved ones all say the same prayer
tonight "God, please protect our men in uniform..."
God bless our Marines.
