Poem For Your Husband The Soldier Patty Patrick

We sincerely hope that you enjoy another world-class Poem written especially for you by our Internationally acclaimed Poet and friend Patty Patrick, for all our wonderful WHISNews21 visitors.

My Husband Is A Soldier

I think about him day and night.

Wish he wouldn’t have to fight

a war in a land

where he doesn’t understand

the language that is spoken,

to pick up pieces that are broken,

where missing comprehension

leads to deadly tension.

 

My husband is a soldier

with a gun over his shoulder.

It is not for his protection,

he has no right for objection,

must follow orders

to cross foreign borders.

 

If it was up to him

and he could do something,

he would turn the knob

and stop this fighting job.

 

I miss him so much.

The only way to stay in touch

is the monthly call

and the letters we write all.

 

After what he’s seen

he will be torn between

dividing an enemy from a friend –

between trust and misunderstand.

 

He will cry at night in dreams,

will see the terrible scenes

over and over again,

the government has put him in.

 

What have they done?

This battle cannot be won!

Destroying lives and everyone involved

without the problem being solved.

 

Every day is full of fear –

for us over here,

for him to survive

and to stay alive.

 

I’m longing for the day

when he comes home to stay,

It will be difficult, I know.

But because I love him so

and with God’s help combined –

we will one day leave it all behind.
