Army Mom’s Safe Haven


They are the protectors and the presence
the saviors and the swords
the peacekeepers and the vigilant...
They're only flesh and bone -
easily destroyed
here today and gone tomorrow
leaving us in eternal sorrow;
They are our starlit moons
and our morning suns;
They -
are the Nation's Guardians.
