Message to a Soldier

Are you going to fight,
For the cause?
If you are,
Then don’t slow down,
Do not pause!

March on soldier,
To fight the good fight!
Just make sure,
To be alive,
By dawn’s first light.

You should know,
That they’re proud,
Your father and mother.
Yet, scared that next,
The draft might claim,
Your sweet younger brother!

He is fearful for you,
Your closest pal.
And missing you,
Dearly,
Is your favorite gal.

So, march on soldier,
To fight the good fight!
But remember,
Your loved ones,
Who pray for your life,
Come back home soon,
By dawn’s first light.

A letter I wrote in poem form while thinking of my once best friend, Cody. Who is currently a Marine fighting in Iraq. Our thoughts are with you.
