A Marine's Wife

A Marine's Wife

A Marine's wife is full of glory
She sees in his eyes his full life story
She's a patient woman of great understanding
She states her opinions and is rarely demanding
In moments of sadness or unexpected sorrow
She'll liven the day for a better tomorrow
She gives him warmth when his life is cold
For he holds the key to her heart of gold
Her ultimate test of being a Marine Corps wife
Is bearing the absence of the man in her life
"My duty comes first," she remembers him saying.
"I may go abroad, but for you I'll be praying."
Her reward will come, very soon one day
When her Marine comes home for a lengthy stay
For this is their castle,
She is the queen
A very proud wife,
Wife of a U.S. Marine.
