A poem I wrote for my son who wont be home this Easter,another holiday without him.

Image via Wikipedia

Yet another holiday is on its way,

and your still in that land not able to play.

I sent you a package in hopes it will cheer,

off to Kuwait for you that is clear.

Filled with small things with hopes a smile they will bring,

balsams planes, bubbles and chocolate bunnies and more little things.

I miss you my angel and so do the rest,

be safe for us all while your out on your quest.

Tomorrow as always in my heart you will be,

wishing and hoping home soon you will see.

The Easter eggs and baskets all have been packed,

for the rest of the babies and that is a fact.

While still far away in that foreign land,

next year hopefully together we will plan.

The family have all sent their love out to you,

with promises next Easter home you will be that is true.

I will end this for now with all my love to you,

Be safe for us baby along with the rest of your crew!

    Your son would have to appreciate this. It can be lonely on holidays when away in a war.
