God, Thank You For Bringing Our Soldier Home!

Soldiers Surprising Their Loved Ones Videos- A Hub By Habee!

I visited Habee's hub: "Soldiers Surprising Their Loved Ones Videos".

It's a hub of heart-warming videos of our soldiers returning home.

The first video blows YOU away!

I was blown away!

Habee's hub inspired me to create this hub/poem before I could comment to her hub about her beautiful hub and beautiful videos!

I wrote a poem just to really make this a legitimate hub of my own - but it isn't.

All I'm doing is drawing you "here" to go here:

Soldiers Surprising Their Loved Ones Videos

God, Thank You For Bringing Our Soldier Home!

He walked onto his sidewalk.

He was overwhelmed and couldn’t talk!

He was at war for more than a lifetime.

Now holding his dog was Heaven sublime!

The dog could remember,

This missing family member!

The separation had lasted forever,

But “this bond”, time could not sever!

Soldiers find their way home,

After lifetimes, - on wings of chrome.

Doors open, surprises, there’s joy and cheers!

Children run and jump on their Parents with tears!

Tears of joy flow freely for this clan so dutiful,

Serving and waiting for this reunion so beautiful!

Fires of love rage with this rekindling and relighting!

Purest love glows and grows with this love reuniting!

These tears are those that wash pain away!

These are tears that say what words cannot say!

These are tears that heal a gaping hole,

And give new life to a withered soul!

Sons and mothers! Mothers and daughters!

Stoke the “fire”, throw on another log!

Fathers and sons! Parents with children!

Thank you for my family, and God, thank you for my dog!

Absolutely wonderful, and great way to bring light to another excellent writer.

I'm seeing so much more of this these days that I am glad to see the community finally taking a turn for the better.

You know how it is lxxy. You see something that overpowers you! Habee's hub has a warning:

"A friend at Fort Stewart just sent me an amazing video. It made me cry, and unless you have a heart of stone, it will greatly affect you."

It was true!

lxxy - count on me to be stupid, crazy, absurd -often- but generally I am just reporting the facts as I see them.

The soldiers and the "blank checks" they write for their lives, the sacrifice, the loneliness endured, the love missed, the family, the children -they are what made the hub, this hub, our lives here in America.

Our soldiers are obedient and brave. They sacrifice because of family and ethics taught to them. This is the majority of our forces. They generally represent the best of our nation. In times as these their lives are on the line - and the lives of their families.

Our leaders make mistakes but our soldiers hold the line! Thank you lxxy!

Your words are appropriate in describing these moments. I can imagine the absence of FEAR now that they are back. I can't imagine how one manages the fear when they are at war, but it has to be FAITH.

Thanks for sharing! love you!!


Micky Dee profile image

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Thank you Brynda! If there is fear, or if you can call it that, then that fear is diminished but it will be in "there" somewhere. But most might "deal" with it. They push it aside. They may cover it up. Maybe bury it. They won't show it! They try to make their beliefs and words reality. Thank you Ma'am. I love you too!

Aye! Mic, I remember coming home, each time was different, but I remember. I remember my dog, she was 12 then not 6, a far cry from the whimpering puppy, locked away in the bathroom alone. She was a German Shepard, she shied away from me, but finally when I was sitting down she answered my call, she did what dogs do, and now you know why. She ran her nose up in my crotch and immediately started whining and shaking her whole hind end, she knew who I was. There's more to that day but I'm stopping here, I'm getting misty, time to tuck it away. Ah, the good times. Peace 50

"Our leaders make mistakes but our soldiers hold the line!"

I couldn't agree more. Whether or not I feel strongly against or for an occupation in another country doesn't mean I should have a tiff with the actual soldiers called for duty. At least they are doing something they believe in---or at least they believe in the check.

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

I cannot remember if I ever liked one of our "leaders". The "leaders" are usually the best liars in the country. We have had some of the best liars in the world!

Yo lxxy! The soldiers are what our "leaders" want America to look like. Our country cannot quite measure up because our "leader" can't/won't.

It's usually the poor man who is the "Grunt"! Thank you Sir.

You really have a huge heart., you are a gem, Micky.

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Yo Dim- you know this ain't no biggy. Habee thought about it, worked, put those videos up, and the videos inspired me on the spot to write some words. So the soldiers, but especially those children were just so heavy. But you know Dim the love that popped out - instantly - the child, the dog, the child, the mother, -it was the purest form of love and energy! Thank you Dim!

I give much appreciation to this hub. Excellent topic. It good to increase our nationality. I think we all know that they are hero, for the country and for the family. They fight to defend and uphold justice. only the blessed ones who have been called his soul to become a soldier. I liked the picture also. You show to us on how they love their partner and their family.

Thumbs up for you, good work and I rate this. Peace :)

Well done Micky, for the poetry and putting the photos with it, very moving. Each photo encapsulates the joy of the return home and reveals to how difficult the time they were away must have been for them and their families. It is important that we remember occasions like these.

Thanks so much for giving ereyvone a very remarkable possiblity to read articles and blog posts from here. It is always very lovely plus stuffed with a good time for me personally and my office acquaintances to search your web site at the least three times in a week to read through the latest issues you will have. Not to mention, I am also usually contented with your impressive tactics you give. Selected 2 points in this posting are indeed the simplest we've ever had.
