I’m so thinking of you
All of you
Who left your family and your home
To serve your country
In absolute awe of you
I think of you today knowing my ability to peek in on a sleeping boy
And listen to his breathing and dream words
Even tiptoe in to smell his hair and rearrange his blankets
I am lucky for that
You left your family and left that
For all of us
I can’t imagine the strength and the honor it took to do that
Today – I think of you.
I thank you.
I love you.
We all must live each day
Being worthy of the incredible heart
It took for you to do that for us
We must act now in a way that makes you proud
All of us
Each of us
