Soldier guy

by BreeAnna   Jun 17, 2007

I can see it in her face,
when you walk away,
her eyes start to water,
and her smile quickly fades.

She clings to her seat,
and lays her head on the glass,
I know she doesnt understand well,
but tonight will slowly pass.

As the car pulled away,
you stepped out into the night,
her smile appeared again,
her face looked so bright.

I realized that night,
that I didnt know her at all,
she was so fragile and weak,
I never thought I would see her fall.

As the rain stopped falling,
I stared deeply into the sky,
I then heard you say to her,
I will always be your soldier guy.

** I wrote this for my sister because her boyfriend was leaving for the army.

    Wow, a really touching poem. I imagined a father going to war, and a mother being the strong woman that fails to do so when the person drives away. It is the type of poem many can relate to, and because of that it is a great piece of art. Really heartful and well rehearsed poem. Keep up the good work!
