A Husband and a Father

by =)~ BJ ~(=

A husband and father
no greater could there be.
To put his life in danger
for his friends and family.
Even for a total stranger
that will never even know his name.

At home is a little girl
waiting patiently for her daddy.
Too young to know him or miss him
But the promise that was made will be kept for him.
Whenever she hears his voice or sees a picture of his loving face
the biggest smile comes across her little face.
To let you know her daddy's in her grace.

At home is a wife
waiting patiently for her husband.
A friend and a lover
that can never be replaced.

We're all so proud of you
All we ask from you is to come
home safely to us all and our friendly faces.
