Servicemen and Women

By 9th April 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

I awoke this morning, I moaned and groaned, I have a job where I want to stay at home
I look out the window I see the outside, why can’t I go back to bed and simply hide
Bus, car or the early train, commuting in rush hour is such a pain
When I was younger I had hopes as dreams, but the job I have makes me want to scream
The same routine almost everyday, when I think of work I want to run away
When customer moans and complains, they can be so annoying, and such a pain
Your in my thoughts your in my prayers, so I would like to have a moment and have this say
From friends and family you proudly go, will you come home nobody knows
Each morning you wake you may moan and groan, but you have that right as you’re away from home
The weather you face is either hot or cold, you left your loved ones at home, and which you cannot hold
When you commute, land, sea or air, you travel the dangers, which many of us won’t dare
When you face your enemy and they decide to complain, they use different methods and put my complaints to shame
I can go back home at the end of the day, but in foreign lands you must stay
When I compare my job to what you do, I want to say to men and women of our armed forces, I proud of you
