(This poem is also helpful for those that have had to say goodbye to loves due to deployment)
I am leaving the one I love tomorrow
I don't have any more tears to spare, or none I can borrow.
My heart aches as i say goodbye one more time
Once again, comforting and soothing words I will have to find.
Forgive me Lord, but I can't take this much more
My soul is wrenching, my heart is sore.
I know I'm not alone when I suffer this loss
Because you said "goodbye" to your son from a cross.
So give me courage and composure to tell him goodbye
And Please Lord, please! help me not to cry.
