In Love With A Soldier (But Not The War)

In Love With A Soldier (But Not The War)

by Carla M. Bisagni


There’s something about a military man

That makes women stop in their tracks and stare.

The mystery, the intrigue, the upright bearing

Makes one wonder what’s hiding under there.

He’s the one who looks right at you when he talks,

And knows just how to please you.

If something’s wrong, he makes it right

In order to appease you.

He stands up for whatever he believes in, no matter what

And stays beside you through times of strife.

It takes a very special person

To live and love the military life.

I myself fell in love with a soldier,

But he is all that and so much more.

He has seen many countries and cities,

And even fought overseas in war.

I miss his smiling face and blue eyes when he’s gone,

And he holds me tightly in his arms when he’s here.

We hold hands, laugh, smile, and always have fun,

To his heart he holds me dear.

Why do I love him, many ask,

Knowing he could be called to deploy.

My answer is that our time together is precious,

And it fills my heart and mind with joy.

It doesn’t matter that he’s married to the Army,

For in my eyes he is so much more.

I’m in love with a man who just happens to be a soldier

But I don’t have to be in love with the war.


He is my rock when I am not strong,
He is my shoulder to cry on,
He is my blanket when I am cold,
He is my strength when I am weak,
He is my husband,
He is my children's father,
He is my best friend,
He is my hero,
He is my Sweet Pea,
He is my MP!



My Husbands Coming Home,
and theres so much to do
I'll have to mow the lawn one more time
and make a thing or two
I need to make a huge ole sign
for all the world to see
that Nicholas and Mommy
having been waiting eternity
I'll have to go out shopping,
for all his favorite things,
don't forget his dinners,
his favorite things to eat,
I'll have to go and get
something nice for us to wear,
even though I know its him,
he really won't care,
cause all he wants is us
his wife and baby boy
he's been waiting just as long
to have us and to hold,
I'll have to get someone to take pictures
when he arrives, so I can capture the
look within both of our eyes,
that he's finally home
and we can finally be
the family of ours,
Our family of Three.

Proud of the way you stand up tall
you wear your uniform & look so handsome and strong
Proud of the way you hold your head high
when something bothers you, you know when to cry
on my shoulder and I listen to the one I believe
was brought to this earth to be married to me.
Proud of your character,  just so dang smart,
you always finds a way, cause of the size of your heart.
Proud of the man I see in my dreams
hes over there fighting for you and for me.
Proud is the word, I have for you
your everything I'm not, thats why I need you.

Without You I have few smiles,
for I have gone on thinking for miles
about the day when you will come back,
for without you this house does lack.
The thing it lacks, is someone I love,
He's my hero, my best friend, and reason to go on.
Without You the house is cold,
no one here to have and to hold.
I wish I may & wish I might
that somehow he would not have to fight
this war among others and us
were only human why can't we just trust.
Cause back at home this house needs you
Your our daddy and Lovers & Dream come true
Our son is growing and learning so much
sometime I dream about the day we will touch.
We love and miss you more than you will ever know.
your our husband and father the best man ever known.
