Army Mom’s Safe Haven



Wait for me.
Wait until I get there.
Wait until I come back,
come home;
wait until I turn the corner,
‘til life gets better,
‘til times are happier,
‘til the time
when God may open
the pearly gate
and I cry out:

Please wait!

I am not ready yet……
I didn’t do the
things I need to do…
I didn’t see the things
I wanted to see
I didn’t say all that
I should have said….

Wait! I need more time
more space
more words
more looking at your face……

Wait for me.
Please wait.
