What Is Your Relationship With Your Sailor
Here are a couple of poems sent to me after Adam's death

To All Parents
"I'll lend you for a little time a child of Mine,"He said.
"For you to love him While he lives and mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years, or 22 or three,
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief.
You'll have his lovely memories as solace and relirf.
"I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are some lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes I have selected you.
Noe will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to take him back again?"
For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may
And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay,
But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned.
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand."

I remember You
When I walk into my church,
I remember you.
When I see children playing in the school yard,
Girls and boys of all kinds,
I remember.
When I see families working together,
Regardless of religion or nationlity,
I remember you.
When I go to sleep
Without worry for my family's safety,
I remember you.
When I see our flag waving in front of my home,
And when I can salute that flag without fear of reprisal,
I remember you.
When I remember you,
I think of the sacrifices you made so I could have these things.
I think of your commitment and your service
beyond mere duty.
I think of all that you have given
So that I and those whom I love can be free.
When I pray at night and give thanks
For the blessings God has given,
I remember you.

Thanks for writing. I'm doing fine. A busy summer so far. Went to see my daughter and family. Had a great time with the grandkids. Went to visit the parents. Celebrated my dad's 79th bday and saw him march in a small parade with his fellow VFW. Saw my MIL who had broke her hip earlier this summer. Now waiting for Craig to go off on deployment. His first. Love your pics. God bless. Take care.
