November 11th is observed as Armistice Day for the end of WWI. Most countries have renamed the day to something else. In the U.S.A. is it called Veteran’s Day for all veterans of all wars.
“Mothers at War”
She serves her country in harms way
works so hard to ease the strain
she misses family every day
hiding all those thoughts of pain.
Desert, jungle, air or sea
no matter where she fights
she follows a most solemn decree
that what she does is right.
Ones that have been left behind
a daily struggle to get by
the love they feel is in a bind
cannot show will make her cry.
Prayers always on bended knee
please keep her safe is all we ask
bring their mother home to me
let her finish her appointed task.
