Marine Corps Poetry: A Hopeful Holiday Christmas

(Cpl Cook forgot the females)

Holidays are coming near
And our lads are over there
And we at home miss them much
And try to stay in close touch

Though absence make the heart
Grow fonder
‘Rather have them here
Than yonder.

We remember the growing years
The times we kissed away their tears
And patched up a skinned knee
The day he fell out of the tree

We cannot help but shed a tear
And put away the nagging fear
That greets us on each morn
That lingers in a heart that’s torn.

So let us all give thanks in prayer
With hope that they return from there
Before the year has turned around
That they are again on home ground.

Semper Fi and Amen!

Cpl. Robert L. Cook
