For the Female Soldiers

7 posts in this topic

Christmas For A Female Medic

Twas the night before christmas

and all through the racks

everything was silent

the hallways were black.

The young female soldier

lay awake in her cot

dreaming of family

and love she once sought.

no one to hold her

this holiday season

She'd given up comforts

for very good reason.

healing the wounded

caring for the sick

wishing only peace

from dear old saint nick

she was bound determined

to see this war through

bringing her peers

back to red, white and blue.

When, out through the gloom

Rose the notes of a song

"Oh holy Night"

sung low and long

The reasons for sending her

May not have been right

But the end to the means

Justified the fight.

Dictator brought down

A people now free

A country to rebuild

unwritten destiny.

So on with the lonliness

in this holiday season

bearing in mind

there is always a reason

Love honor duty

to country and peers

has spread to a wiseness

well beyond years

so she cowboys up plenty

and keeps tears in check

as the men women and children

of war come in wrecked

broken and damaged

red, brown, yellow or white

she treats them all kindly

as God would see right

And through this season

of holiday "cheer"

she prays for the family

she won't see til next year.
