Wherever You Are

Updated on November 26, 2012

Play the video first.

Before reading the poem play the video and reach for the tissues. Inspired by the video at this emotional time of year for people separated from loved ones, family and friends, wherever you are.

Wherever You Are

A poem by poshcoffeeco

Wherever you are we all think of you

To do your jobs at this time of year

Your safety means our safety

As you go about your daily lives

We salute you and thank you

For each day with your crew

This country owes a great debt of gratitude

It is Christmas once again

And where do we begin

To understand what you must be going through

Military wives have got the idea

To sing a song

Which to them will bring you near

To the top of the charts this must go

And make your day at this important part of the

So Christmas wishes to all far and near

Come home safe in the new year.
