I GOT YOUR BACK 

"An absolutely beautiful poem...very touching."


I just thought I'd pass along a poem that was sent to me. This one really touched me. God bless our US service members and their families for the sacrifices they make everyday. Please say a prayer for those who are gone that they come home and don't forget to say thanks to those who “have our backs.”

I Got Your Back

I am a small and precious child,
my dad's been sent to fight.
The only place I'll see his face,
Is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days
for my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad, but I am proud.
My daddy's got your back.
I am a caring mother.
My son has gone to war.
My mind is filled with worries,
That I have never known before.
Everyday I try to keep
My thoughts from turning black
I may be scared, but I am proud.
My son has got your back.
I am a strong and loving wife,
with a husband soon to go.
There are times I'm terrified,
in a way most never know.
I bite my lip, and force a smile,
as I watch my husband pack.
My heart may break, but I am proud.
My husband's got your back.
I am a soldier,
serving proudly, standing tall.
I fight for freedom, yours and mine
by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing,
The thanks it sometimes lacks.
Say a prayer that I'll come home,
It's me who's got your back.
