Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year’s bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go,—so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, “There is no memory of him here!”
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.
In a world of camouflage and flags unfurled, A military child's childhood,
a unique world, With every move, a new adventure to unfold,
In the footsteps of heroes, brave and bold. From base to base, across the land they roam,
A nomadic life, far away from home, Yet amidst the changes, they find their way,
A military child's resilience on display. Daddy or Mommy, in uniform so proud,
Their presence a symbol, strong and loud, Teaching lessons of honor, duty, and grace,
In a military child's heart, they find their place. Reunions filled with tears of joy and glee,
As the deployed parent returns, finally free, Hugs and laughter, love that never ends,
In a military child's life, family transcends. Saying goodbye is a part of the deal,
But the bonds they form, they know are real, Friends all around the world, far and wide,
In a military child's heart, they're side by side. They learn to adapt, to face the unknown,
To stand resilient, even when alone, A military child's courage, a shining star,
Guiding them no matter where they are. Through deployments, sacrifices, and the miles,
They carry the pride that forever compiles, A legacy of service, honor, and dreams,
In a military child's world, resilience gleams. In the tapestry of a military life's thread,
A child's story, with love and strength, is spread, For in their journey, we find the truth,
A military child's childhood, filled with youth.
