His Letter

Written By: Marc 'Bear' Grindle

She got his letter yesterday
And read aloud what he had to say
Honey I miss you more each day
I’m sorry this has to be

It’s day to day in this living Hell
With roadside bombs and mortar shells
As fires burn an un-Godly smell
Please say a prayer for me

And tell the kids I miss them so
They’re in my heart everywhere I go
I love you more than you’ll ever know
But I’m here for what I believe

And give a call to cousin Joe
We’ll go hunting when I get home
I never thought I’d miss the cold
Though right now I’d love to freeze

**********************************

Now the sarge says we gotta move
Hopin’ today will go real smooth
Hugs and kisses to all of yous
As its off to duty for me

He ended with an X X O
It kinda looked like tic-tac-toe
Wasn’t one to go with the flow
It was pretty clear to see
**********************************
From a firefight along the way
A life is gone, a family changed
He served with pride and honor to his final day
For destiny is what we make
In a ruthless world of give and take
And the consequence is a heavy price to pay
**********************************

Tears rolled down her cheek today
When sad news arrived of his fate
As the MPs left and drove away
She was overcome with grief

Another widow at a younger age
Copes with anger and inner rage
Hoping her man didn’t die in vain
Such a high cost to be free

**********************************

She got his letter yesterday
And read aloud what he had to say
Honey I miss you more each day
I’m sorry this has to be
