|Dear Doris, I have put this on as to how the wives feel.
As I lay down to sleep, this eve of Christmas morn, '
I slide between the cotton sheets so comfortable and warm.
A tinge of guilt comes over me followed by a saddened tear.
I say another lonely prayer that only God can hear.
I turn the bedside light off and quickly settle in,
but it will be a few more hours before my night comes to an end.
I lie here all but motionless, eyes wider than the sky.
I try to think of happy thoughts, but I still break down and cry.
I punch my flattened pillow and lie flat on my back.
I'm thinking of my soldier who's bravely serving in Iraq.
I finally stop my crying and a calm sets in my heart.
For, I know this year will quickly pass, then we'll no longer be apart.
My eyes are feeling heavy now, so I send God one last prayer.
"God, please protect my soldier while fighting over there!"
