Favorite Quote:
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Sittin one the front steps
staring at the moon
Knowing that somewhere
you're lookin at it, too

Sleeping in the grass
cuz I don't wanna go
to our big bed
with one extra pillow

Nothing can fill your space
nothing at all
I sit around waiting
for you to call

I got the notice
they said you weren't well
you were attacked
and three soldiers fell

a sorrow filled day
and a sad, sad night
hoping and praying
that you'll be alright

I wait for the call
day after day
hoping for someone
to say you're okay

In the mail
came a horrible letter
telling me
that you didn't get better

The lonely months
turn to a year
I wish that you
were with me here

There are some things
I never got to say
I held them in
until this day

Loving you
was like no other
Soon I will be
a very proud mother

I wish you could see
your kids as they grow
You love them
and they will always know

I will remember you
as long as I can
How could I forget
my favorite army man?
