"I'm Gone" -my son wrote this a week before he left for Great Lakes

I try to write this everyday
my tongue gets tied on what to say
you guided me through good and bad
I'm leaving soon but don't be sad
A man I am thanks to ya'll
I promise you that I will call
You've raised me right
and that I know
through laughs and fights
which made me grow
your sons a sailor
and damn proud to be
I'm serving our country
the home of the free
so when you can't sleep
just look at the sky
on that ship
so will I
I'm not scared
there's no reason to be
beleive in God
like you've taught me
four years I'm gone
alot will change
don't let Jessica forget my name
a life to live
and alot to see
thank you guys
for loving me

Outstanding! As a parent, words can't begin to describe the pride you must be feeling. What a wonderful and thoughtful gift.
