Unimagined Devotion

                      Cammies, dog tags, covers and such
                I never knew I would have to learn so much.
                      A whole new language I have learned.
             After a college degree I had already earned. 
                           Knowledge is never ending
                     Never standing still in the  Corps
                     There isalways something to learn here
                      And we always must learn  more.
                                     
                      I have learned to appreciate distance
                     For it is all we have  ever known.
                       We stand to reap the just rewards
                 For the fields of love  that we have sown.
                                     
                         I never question his devotion
                       I know he serves two masters 
                     His all protective Lord and his Corps
                    To protect him from all  disasters.
                                     
                       If I ever question his love for me
                   I could have never  married this man.
                      What makes me love him so much more
                      Is the fact he  takes a stand.
                                     
                        He stands for all that I believe
                      He loves me with all his  heart
                        I love himwith both his masters
                       And I dare him to ever part. 
                                     
                           My husband has two masters
                           But he never loves me less
                  For the fact God gave me a Marine to love
                            I am eternally blessed!
