The black clouds in your eyes are like the sky just before a storm hits and here I stand on this rocky old ship in the middle of the sea wondering if this'll be the one that wrecks me. #poetry#love#thoughts
This piece was written as a work of fiction back in July of 2018 when my husband and sons returned home from a weekend getaway. Today I repost it in my youngest son's honor because he truly has been away at war, lost somewhere deep within himself, and I'm both proud and happy to announce that he returned home safely to us this past Sunday (both literally and figuratively), and is faring far better than expected. His recent victory gives new meaning to this poem knowing how hard he fought to get back to us, and this Thanksgiving season in particular, I couldn't possibly be more grateful than I am today not only for that, but also for all of you and your heartfelt prayers and words of encouragement. 'Thanks' is simply not enough, but I do thank each of you from the bottom of my heart; and from my home to yours, I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. God bless. ♥️
HOME by Carolyn Glackin The cavalry is home again And mother is so pleased The good Lord kept them Safe from harm In the face of enemies And oh they are a winsome lot The most handsome one, her man With eyes of blue and heart of gold And skin once fair, now tan For he hath toiled The whole day through Beneath the scorching sun Not resting for a moment Until the war was won And every time he goes away He brings her heart along And the time apart Reminds these two That their love is pure and strong Oh the cavalry is home again And mother is overcome She weeps with tears of gladness As she looks upon her sons Long gone now Are the babes they were And in their place stand men She only hopes they truly know How proud she is of them She offers prayers of gratitude That the good Lord spared each one And begs peace upon this noble earth Let the time of war be done! Oh mother dear Set your fears aside Your men are in your sight And revel in glad tidings For the cavalry's home tonight. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 7/8/2018.
