Loving a Marine
By: Madison Meadows
The days may seem long, but that’s okay
Because they come and fade away.
Loving a Marine is a beautiful task,
It takes many things that one may lack.
It takes courage, love, and faithfulness too,
Also communication that is shared between the two.
Loving a Marine can be hard as well,
It can leave you longing for more and not feel so swell.
Yes, the time does feel slow,
But that shouldn’t keep you feeling so low.
Loving a Marine is found in many ways,
You can find it anywhere every day.
From mothers, brothers, sisters, and fathers,
To friends, cousins, enemies, and lovers.
Loving a Marine is something I would never trade,
Thinking of him keeps me strong in every way.
The pictures, letters, and Marine items I hold onto,
Keep me smiling and hopeful in everything I do.
Loving a Marine should fill you with pride,
To know they are protecting you from every side.
They fight a battle that is hard to win,
But will claim victory in the end.
Loving a Marine is something special I feel,
It’s something no one can break down or steal.
Knowing I have a man so noble and brave,
Makes prince charming seem so lame.
Loving a Marine can take all your energy and might,
It’s worth every minute for that one day he’s in sight.
We should all respect and stand up for
Our men and women in the United States Marine Corps!
