He was so distant, Ten thousand miles away

But with him forever her heart will stay

A wife of a soldier in Afghanistan he fights

Defending our country with dangerous plights

At home she stays, and with her family she prays

She finds useful ways to fill the long days

No news is good news she tells herself

As only a couple of letters sit upon her bookshelf

He was supposed to come home, but remains out there

She only hopes her God will answer her prayer

To bring him home safe, unharmed and well

As at home together is where their happiness dwells
