"If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it dosent, then it was never meant to be."-unknown

In a heartbeat I will grow
In a heartbeat I will go
In a heartbeat I will cry
When you come to my mind
Please don’t go
Please don’t leave me be
Please stay and do not fight
Please stay with me until daylight
Then stay with me till midnight
Until the moon grows large then small
In a heartbeat I will fall
In a heartbeat I will forget
In a heartbeat I will long
For my Daddy to come home

The author's comments:
This poem I came up with while looking at some of my bother's pictures with his little girl. He is in the army and his little girl is now 7 months old. Some people do not understand how hard it is to leave a child and go to war. Because when you came back home your baby doesn't remember you. It can take months for them to be comfortable with you. I dedicate this to all the men and women fighting- not just the U.S. soldiers either -for the less lucky people who are not free. And for those who do this while trying not to think of their children at home.
