The fear beings to grip my heart and clouds
my eyes with pools of terror, doubt, and pain.
His words bring news that has begun to shroud
The future's crystal vision with dark rain--
uncertainties, which make the mind grow cold.
He'll walk away and try to steel his nerve
Yet I can see his happiness so bold
Now that he goes across the sea to serve
With flag upon his shoulder and his heart.
I am determined to be strong for him
While he defends our country. My sweetheart,
Away from me, at times I'll feel so grim.
To be alone and not know where he'll be--
Is this the sacrifice God meant for me?
This is something pretty personal that is going on in my life because it looks like my husband will be up for deployment next year. I found that it was difficult to accurately express what I was feeling while at the same time counting syllables, stresses, and trying to rhyme. Does it seem like I was able to get my message across? Are there any phrases or sentences that don't make sense?
