To those who are away,

Training to protect and fighting for freedom,

A message from loved ones: come home


To the hardcore Marines

And to the fearless Army

Come home


To the Air Force high in the sky

And the Navy floating on the water

Come home


To the ever vigilant Coast Guard

And the Trainees at basic

Come home


Take heart you who stay back, 

And worry for those who are away,

They are coming home


To the concerned parents

And the anxious grandparents

They are coming home


To the worried siblings & friends

And to the ever faithful spouse

They are coming home


To the Nation who is guarded,

Those you sent to defend you,

They are coming home

The author's comments:

A close friend of mine went to Basic Training and i feared that i would never see him again, so i wrote this to reassure myself and his girlfriend that we would see him again.
