The fear begins to grip my heart and clouds
My eyes with tears of sadness, doubt, and pain.
His words bring news that has begun to shroud
The future's crystal vision with dark rain—
Uncertainties, which make my mind grow cold.
He'll walk away and try to steel his nerve,
Yet I can see his happiness untold.
Now he will go 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. He’ll depart
And far from him, my light will grow so dim.
To be alone and not know where he'll be—
Is this the sacrifice God meant for me?
