Del “Abe” Jones


It’s a day set aside in May
To Honor those often left at home
Who stand beside their loved ones
Who are often on the roam.

They raise the family, pay the bills
And do it all without complaint
Many times they aren’t too happy
But hold their feelings in restraint.

They’re the backbone of the Services
And hold the line on the Homefront
They put their own lives on hold
With their Spouses’ on the forefront.

Men and Women 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
Of a very Special kind.
