hey ladies... I know this is personal but the ladies in my playroom thought I should see if someone can help. I wrote this poem but don't want it to just be black and white print. I kind of want it too like a poster with a patriotic background or a lovers background or something so I can put it in my siggy and on my Myspace page. DH is deployed and I was going through a rough spot and wrote this, so thought I would ask. If anyone is creative enough to do this (which is most of you by the looks of your work), then can you help? Thanks so much
She is somebody to a Soldier
By: Jeanann Stewart
She goes through old album's trying to remember when war was just a game to him
She hears the songs on the radio and although she feels nothing but pride, she cries
She wants a phone call but knows the bulk of them go to their love, their wife, and she tries to be understanding
She is a soldier's mother.
She's sitting by the phone all day in hopes of not missing the call
She watches the news and checks her email 1000 times a day hoping to catch a glimpse and know he is ok
She holds her baby and studies their face because she sees him in her and everything she does
She is a soldier's wife
She plays with the doll he bought her but doesn't understand who gave it to her
She watches the videos he made and calls out his name, but doesn't know what "Daddy" actually means
She goes about her day not knowing that somewhere a man is missing her growing up
She is a soldier's daughter
She could be all of us one day
She is the woman who struggles and puts on a brave face
She mows the lawn, fixes the sink, watches the kids, and never complains
She is a soldier's life
