~Damien~

Your life began,
23 years ago today.
I'm writing this to wish you,
A very Happy Birthday.

I wish I could be with you,
to celebrate your birth.
But overseas is where you,
are living on this Earth.

The Marines is what,
you chose as your career.
So everyday of your life,
your safety is what I fear.

On this day every year,
I remember the day you were born.
All the red hair,
that on your head you adorned.

You were quite  large for a newborn,
at 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 20 inches long.
You wanted to eat right away,
the doctors said that your lungs were very strong.

Then came your cravings,
for hot dogs none the less.
It is what I ate the whole time,
I was pregnant I must confess.

You cried and cried,
we didn't know why.
The doctor said to give you a hot dog,
it was worth a try.

You sucked on it,
til it was dry.
But as long as you had it,
you didn't cry.

I miss you so much,
I wish you could know.
Everyday that you are there,
my heartache continues to grow.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAMIEN

Author's Notes:

Damien is my oldest son.
He is stationed in Japan,
I really miss him.
His birthday is even worse than most days.

The song playing is Manic Monday by the Bangles

It has always been his favorite song since childhood

Damien--that's a good name for a boy/man and a marine too. I love your poem and know that he did too if he likes poetry at all. With it being for him, he probably likes this one even if he doesn't like poetry.

This is a excellent piece, I'm sure your son loves it. He picked a great service to be in.
