Diana June

A soldier’s wedding
Barely and almost nineteen
Christmas Eve married

So much time apart
Military standard time
God and Country first

She had our baby
He was our only miracle
He amazes me

First came Germany
Then came a year in Vietnam
I could not give more

We made a new life
Success moved us to Texas
It was not enough

After sixteen years
Something was not right with me
Then we fell apart

Her anger still lives
Remarriage not withstanding
We both love our son

I still remember
All she sacrificed for us
She deserves applause

This is her birthday
Her cake holds many candles
I still wish her well
