I sometimes wonder

I sometimes wonder what more it takes to be the perfect military spouse...

I married the perfect man in blue.
I knew it would last through and through.

I cook, I clean, I do the laundry and yard work too.
Sometimes it seems as if there is to much to do.

I try my hardest, to do what all other military wives do.
Damn these deployments, they cut worse than knives and stick worse than
glue.

I gave up my civilian life.
I didn't know it would be such a strife.

I'm living the perfect live, with my husband in blue.
I'm giving my all to be the perfect military spouse to.
