Nite before christmas and the all through the house not a creature stirred not a creature made a peep.....
Except in the shadows and only if you looked carefully
was there a black shape,
It didn’t seem evil and it seem wrong but the simple black shadow made one feel safe and sound.
For it was a soldier who stayed at his watch,
waiting and hoping......
that his own family would be warm and at peace on this cold Christmas nite.
His job took him far away and across the world,
Yet even on this coldest of nites as he looked at the stars he knew,
THAT HIS FRIENDS AND HIS COMRADES WOULD BE WATCHING HIS FAMILY THAT NITE.
