We Await Your Return

February 24, 2011
By , Bellevue, NE
As the wind blows through distant countries
Our minds will flutter with thoughts of you as a child
Holding your favorite tarnished grey bear tightly
For fear of losing him.

As the sun's rays shine upon your surfacing submarine
Our hearts will wildly anticipate
Your adventurous smile
And sea stories
Through foreign countries.

As we hear of American soldier fatalities on the world news
Our family will pray.

As I glance at your empty shoes
On our doorstep
I'll be missing you

My navy brother.
