~ The Absence Of Family ~

From the inside looking out
Oh, what do we see?
Doubt, Fear
We hide our grown-up tears,
The absence within our family.

From the outside looking in
Oh, what do we see?
A ravaged land
Ruled by a dictator's hand.
The absence of it's families.

We send our brave,
our strong at heart.
To protect and serve
in a country torn apart.

We learn from those we send,
To hold our head up high.
From the given duty they will not bend,
American pride cannot be denied.
Only the absence from our family belies.

I pray for their courage and safety alike;
Brother, Sister, Son and Daughter, Dad, Mom, Husband and Wife.
I turn and hide my grown up tears,
I pray for the little ones, oh, so dear.
Someday, may they understand
the absence from our family.
