Goodbye My Son
These are words that a mother does not want to say
But when a son decides to serve his country
Those words must come one day
Sitting on the bus ready for a new deployment
Looking in his eyes for one last moment
With hopes for his safe return
Her guts and nerves just burn
Now she runs through scenarios in her head
Is he happy, hungry, tired or dead?
Then you hear that knock on the door…
Goodbye my son until we meet again.
