"Build Up to M-Day" - A Dedication To My Son


A tribute I wrote for my personal Screaming Eagle...

To my son, MJ

Soldier’s Sleep

As you struggled with your call
I know you gave it all your all
Knowing that The Patriot’s Call
Would not allow you to fall.

As I struggled with your call
Knowing that I once gave my all
I too answered that Patriot’s Call
I would not accept nigh a fall.

And as I watched you swear your Oath
The tears of pride that I squelched
I could not believe that we both
Would continue on the sacred Oath.

As we left you there at MEPS
Not knowing when or where
But trusted God your soul to keep
And guard you from the Soldier’s Sleep.
