My New Favorite Poem..Author Unknown

A Soldier's Girl

One night a soldier looked up into the heavens and made a plea to God.

"God I'm so alone down here. All I do is fight and face the demons of the earth.

Please send me someone"

So God called forth his angels and asked them to help create a soldiers' girl.

"Boss give her strength!" cried Michael

"So that she can bear the weight and pressure of always packing up and going with her man at a moments notice"

God was pleased and added strength.

"She must have patience!" called forth Gabriel

"So that she can have the understanding of the stress of the job that is required of her man"

God was pleased and added patience.

Peter thought about it and said "Let her be compassionate"

"So that she can sooth away the nightmares and horrors that the soldier will see"

God was pleased and added compassion.

Jesus went forth and said,

"Dad give her faith, faith that her man loves her and that no matter what it takes he will get home to her"

God was pleased and added faith.

All the saints and angels looked and said

"God she's perfect! She is beautiful and she is the one for the soldier

"A small angel took a closer look and saw a tear falling down from the face of the woman.

He looked up and said

"God she's crying, why are you making tears for her?"

God looked down and said "I didn't put that there"

To love a soldier is to take on the hardest task in all the world
