A POEM FOR MATT MAUPIN

SPC Keith “Matt” Maupin

Dear Matt:

I hope you won’t mind
my calling you that.

I’ve heard so much about you
and I wonder how your parents
can carry on without you

I’m an ArmyMom, that’s me;
My son’s a soldier

and I know that Freedom is
not free.

You’d be surprised to know
how often you are mentioned
on the net

I just wanted to say hello
and let you know we won’t forget

and until the day you make it home,
I’ll pray that you know you aren’t alone

So, God Bless you, Matt Maupin
as for praying, we aren’t stoppin’……
