Semper Fidelis

Semper Fidelis

The strongest Marine I ever met
His eyes the warmest green
My own true man for me to love
The best I’ve ever seen

He’s stifled now by problems
He waivers but turns the bend
We are apart for now he says
But can it mean the end?

I hear warmth in your voice today
And you say it’s me you love
It is an answer to many prayers
I’ve sent to God above

Straddling the fence you are it seems
Wondering if this love is true
Please know it is, and be faithful to me
I have done all of this for you

Please be faithful, my strong true man
It is the backbone of your life
Know deep within your fighter’s heart
That I must be your wife

Semper Fidelis, an honourable term
Standing for courage and heart,
Honour, strength and faith are you
You’ve always stood apart

You fit its bill to perfection
And you’ve never wavered before
I know you will endure this strive
And I’ll earn your love once more
