All I want for Christmas

Sgt Grit,

My name is Sara Figgins and a Christmas poem I wrote for Cpl Mark Olsen who is stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

All I want for Christmas
Sara Figgins

All I want for Christmas,
Although your far away,
Is for you to know I think of you especially today,

All I want for Christmas,
Although your boots are filled with sand, Is for you to know I care about you in a far distant land,

All I want for Christmas,
Although your many deeds go unknown,
Is for you to know I miss you because your gone from home,

All I want for Christmas,
Although your one of the few and proud I see, Is for you to know you’re my United States Marine,

All I want for Christmas,
Although miles come between,
Is for you to know I’m alright with you right here by me,

All I want for Christmas,
Although many have forgot,
Is for you to know that I, unlike others, have not,
‘This twenty-fifth of December, All is secure,
This is my job,
To my country; the Corps,’

All I want for Christmas,
Although I understand,
Is for you to know that I’m yours and Semper Fi to my man.
