Loving a soldier Loving a soldier is a high price to pay, loving him truly is hard when he's away.
It's being alone with nothing to hold;
it's being young, but feeling old;
it's having him whisper his love for you;
it's whispering back that you love him too.
There comes a kiss and a promise for more,
as his plane slowly rises to soar;
reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,
while your insides are dying from wanting him so,
watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
standing alone with your hopes, dreams and fears.
It's sending a letter with the stamp upside down,
to a far away love in a far away town.
It's going to church to kneel and pray,
and really meaning the things that you say.
Being in love will foster your dreams,
of that far away soldier your mind fairly beams.
Days go by, no mail for a spell,
you wait for some word to hear that he's well.
Then a letter arrives, and you've given in,
to open his letter and read it with a grin,
yes, he is well and misses you so,
it's filled with the love you wanted to know.
Weeks are like months, and months are like years,
you wait for the day when you'll have no more fears.
Days go by slowly, how many have passed?
Yes, loving a soldier brings bitterness and fears,
loneliness, sadness and despondent years.
Loving a soldier isn't much fun,
but it's worth the price when the battle is won;
and remember he is thinking of you everyday,
he's sad and he's lonely while so far away;
so love him and miss him and hold your head high,
be strong and have faith, wipe that tear from your eye.
It's the high price you pay for loving a soldier

Lovely piece Asinate. This is the story of the unsung heroines. Isa a tribute to the silent suffering wives of soldiers who live with this emotional ride day in and day out. May you all be richly blessed and may the strength of our Lord be with you always.

Isa totoka qori noqu lewa.......There's alot to tell about our men and women in uniform.....sacraficed,dedication,loved and hoped.........And to look into a soldiers eye the window to their soul.Look out from the inside of their mind and see how horros never told.You say we are just killers,it not that plain you see many innocent lives taken and soldiers were some giving thier lives freely to get the job done.The last cold stare of death we see in our buddies eyes,they fight for all your freedom,this is why we die.Some may wonder why we fight to protect the nation and may be lose our lives,ask a question to a soldier,the answer in his eyes,always we will be here waiting for the call we wont deny.We'll always fight for the freedom never asking why.We'll go away far off land leaving our love ones behind.Many times we are alone several times inside,open the windows to our souls see tears we hide,secret we cannot keep are in a soldiers EYE..........ex sos.
