~ The Family of a Soldier ~

They won't erase the message
Of the last time they called home
They play it back once a day
A voice that sounds alone…

To them it's truly sacred
A link to have them there,
And every time they play it back
They offer up a prayer.

And there's the picture on the fridge-
With a Bible verse or two
And always tugging at their hearts
Are those eyes of baby blue.

They watch the daily news
And sometimes shed a tear
For every soldier that gave their life
To them is held so dear...

Just a few small rituals
Done each and every day
By the families of our soldiers
While they are far away…

(But I've never known one yet…
that didn't stop to pray!)

God Bless Our Troops
And the families of those that serve!
