Best of the Best

Best of the Best


The days are very long,
The nights are filled with sadness.
I jumpto every ring of the phone,
hoping you would have time to call.
My mind is never clear,
emotions and thoughts running through.
I knew then, I know now,
How loyal you can be.
Your job takes you near and far
defending your country.
The best of the best,
even the best dressed.
Standing on a wall,
keeping us safe.
Marine when you have time to rest
think of me and keep me close.
I will be here when you return
to hold you, loveyou until you go again.

I wrote this for my husband Cpl De Ville. Iove you Stephen!
