Unimagined Devotion

Cammies, dog tags, covers and such
I never knew I would ahve to learn so much.
A whole new language I have learned
After a college degree I had already earned.

Knowledge is never ending
Never standing still in the Corps
There is always something to learn here
And we always must learn more.

I have learned to appreciate distance
For it is al we have ever known.
We stand to reap the just rewards
For the fields of love that we have sown.

I never question his devotion
I know he serves two masters
His all protective Lord and his Corps
To protect him from all disasters.

If I ever questioned his love for me
I could have never married this man.
What makes me love him so much more
Is the fact he takes a stand.

He stands for all that I believe
He loves me with all his heart
I love him with both his masters
And I dare him to ever part.

My husband has two masters
But he never loves me less
For the fact God gave me a Marine to love
I am eternally blessed.
