My Marine – The Bravest I’ve Seen

I wrote a poem about my boyfriend Kris. He graduated from boot camp last November and from SOI training in February. We've been dating for a little more than 2 1/2 years and we're still going strong. I'm so incredibly proud of him and I really appreciate everything he's doing for me and everyone else who loves him. I realize the men and women serving our country don't always recieve the amount of thanks they deserve but I try and make sure Kris knows how much it means to me. K, here's my poem… :) 

My Marine
by Megan Six

His camouflage unifrom brings out the green color of his eyes
I sit and watch him pack his bags and anticipate our goodbyes
He must stand the ground that freedom upholds
And endure engagements wherever they may unfold
It's hard to comprehend what he must do
He's fighting for his country, for me, and for you
He puts his life on the line, cause freedom isn't free
He's forced to experience things I may never have to see
He has the mind and body of a warrior, he's been taught to kill
He was trained to do these things, cause no one else will
I glance at him once more, he's one of the bravest men I've ever seen
But then again, he'd have to be, he's a United States Marine
