I watched as they stood in line today, his girl by his side, a baby on the way.


Why? Must there be a war Dear Lord to take him far away, he does so need my strength right now as she begin to pray.


Her tears begin to fall as she held onto his hand, she couldn't bear to face a pain she didn't understand.


I made a promise and a vow, to death we wouldn't part, so Lord please help me stand by him, bring honor to his heart


The little one I carry God my never know his Dad, oh Lord please help me dry my tears, and not to be so sad.


Yes, in times of trouble you've up held me in the past, and I do so need your grace right now to help him face this task.


The line was slowly moving forth, as I watched her lips in prayer. With each new step their fate grew closer, I couldn't help but stare.


I watched in awe and wonder, when her head begin to raise, The mantle of the Lord shown there, her tears begin to fade.


By the time they reached the desk, his recruiter they came to see, I watched as she replaced her fears, with elegance, grace, and ease.


Lord, help her with her task today, it's a burden she must bear. For such is the life of The Soldiers Wife, I know for I've been there.

I cannot imagine what its like for a wife but my son was in for 10 yrs. This is very moving and i'm so glad it was gone through with God. I cannot begin to tell how proud i am of all our service men and women. God bless and keep! Beautifully writen!
