Del “Abe” Jones


She is the real foot-soldier
On rough roads behind at home
She’ll stand up for Her loved one
Who is often on the roam.

She’ll raise the family, pay the bills
And do it all without complaint
Many times She’s not too happy
But holds Her feelings in restraint.

She’s the backbone of the Services
And holds the Line on the Home front
She’ll put Her own life on hold
With Her Spouse on the forefront.

Those Ladies hold the “Fort” down
For their significant others
Who are off preserving Freedom
With their “Sisters” and “Brothers”.

There’s not enough Credit given
To those Spouses left behind
For they truly are a rare breed
Yes! She’s a very special kind.
