In Love With A Soldier (But Not The War)

In Love With A Soldier (But Not The War)

by Carla M. Bisagni


There’s something about a military man

That makes women stop in their tracks and stare.

The mystery, the intrigue, the upright bearing

Makes one wonder what’s hiding under there.

He’s the one who looks right at you when he talks,

And knows just how to please you.

If something’s wrong, he makes it right

In order to appease you.

He stands up for whatever he believes in, no matter what

And stays beside you through times of strife.

It takes a very special person

To live and love the military life.

I myself fell in love with a soldier,

But he is all that and so much more.

He has seen many countries and cities,

And even fought overseas in war.

I miss his smiling face and blue eyes when he’s gone,

And he holds me tightly in his arms when he’s here.

We hold hands, laugh, smile, and always have fun,

To his heart he holds me dear.

Why do I love him, many ask,

Knowing he could be called to deploy.

My answer is that our time together is precious,

And it fills my heart and mind with joy.

It doesn’t matter that he’s married to the Army,

For in my eyes he is so much more.

I’m in love with a man who just happens to be a soldier

But I don’t have to be in love with the war.
