I Tied A Yellow Ribbon Today
Here is a poem that I wrote the other night for my son now serving in the Marines over in the war in Iraq, I think that all parents can relate. Please print if you can.
I tied a yellow ribbon for you today.
You are so far away.
The days come and go without end,
I can’t wait for you to come home again.
When you were born on that December Day.
I prayed to God to never take you away.
A tear rolled down my cheek,
as I looked into your beautilful eyes.
Knowing that one day you might have to go
war, too save all our lives.
And now the future has come true,
As I sit here and write to you.
Iraq is where you are at,
out in the desert in the heat,
sweaty and wearing a big back pack.
You never complain or regret,
the sacrifices that you have made,
or the time you have spent.
Making sure that when I go to bed at night,
I can wake up and see freedom’s light.
