SISTER TO BROTHER – ON GOING TO WAR

Well, brother, dear, you’re headed for War
and I will stay here, like always before
I will be praying for your safe return
Send me some letters so I can learn
why you are there, and what you do
I will be looking for letters from you.
Sometimes we fight; (I’m your little sis)
but the fights always ends with a hug and a kiss
But you know I love you; I hope that you do
And I will be praying, and waiting, for you.

Author’s Note: For Wesley Burnham, headed for Iraq, and his sister, Laura
