HER CHRISTMAS SOLDIER

Posted on by Donna Sue

Tree soldier

 

 

Alone again at Christmas

Her soldier gone to war

She feels the sting of helpless tears

Just like she did before.

She wonders where he’s at tonight

In bunk or sandy hole

Just wishing she could hold him tight

To warm her aching soul.

While the Christmas lights are blinking

Her thoughts are far away

Can’t help the fear that grips her heart

This time on Christmas Day.

She curls into his favorite shirt

Wrapped round her like a glove

She smiles at thoughts that bring him near

And memories of love.

Please bring my Soldier home she prays

Then switches off the light

And slips into a peaceful dream

 Of him this Christmas night.
