Artist's Description

The two roses represent my two brothers who were both deployed to the Middle East at the same time. One to Afghanistan the other to Iraq. Both are now home safe and sound, but both due to deploy again in January to Iraq.

My Brothers…

Soldiers both, standing tall

Fighting in the desert for Freedom’s Call.

Mountains loom in the landscape dense,

while bullets and IEDs rumble, thunder, and dispense.

My Brothers…

Proud, loving, and there…

While I, your sister, patiently wait

for you here.

Safe and sound sleeping in my bed,

dreams and memories of you both,

run rampant through my head.

Of times when we were younger…

of growing up.

Good times…

bad times they get all mixed up.

My Brothers…

I miss you so very much.

I worry about your safety

from dawn ’til dusk.
