Poetry

"daddy in desert land"

Here is a poem I wrote for my husband Spc Adam Law. He is my love and my
hero. Even though he is in Iraq, I always have him close to my heart.

"daddy in desert land"

he is too young to understand
why daddy is so far away
far in a different land
what can i say?

i will tell him you love him
and that you will be back
but now God is protecting him
while he is in Iraq

he is growing so fast
still doesn't understand
why daddy is so far
why daddy is in desert land

i will tell him daddy is here
even if you can't see
he is in our thoughts and heart
and even when we dream

you will miss his first words
still can't understand
why daddy is not home
why daddy sleeps in desert land

i will tell him always
daddy loves you
more than the stars in the sky
and more than the world

you missed him enjoying the sun
he is full of energy and joy
still young to understand
what can i tell our little boy

i will tell him you send him a kiss
and a hug to fill his heart
until your safe return
we won't be so far apart

you will miss his first steps
still too young to understand
daddy is fighting for our country
there in desert land

he is learning new things
still young understand
what could i tell him
why daddy is in desert land

daddy is across that sea
one day you'll understand
daddy fights for our freedom
there in desert land
