HOMEWARD BOUND
.
Open your arms, Dear Lord! 
On this sacred day,
For a proud Marine
is on his way.
.
It was like nothing we’d ever
seen before,
when he reported for duty
at Heaven’s door.
Deep in the night,
as the world slept sound,
his chariot arrived,
and he was homeward bound.
.
The ultimate grunt,
Dress Blues now white;
One Marine standing tall
on this most sacred of nights.
Young and vibrant,
wounds of battle now gone.
No more suffering or pain,
As he rose to move on.
.
With one final glance
at the ones that he love,
he was whisked through the clouds
to his deployment above.
His chariot was swift,
with six Restless white horses.
Then the thunder roared,
and his chariot departed.
.
We’ll miss his warm smile,
In our own selfish way,
But your gift to the Corps
will be back home today.
.
Semper Fi, my friend.

Religious bigotry: It’s not that I hate everyone who doesn’t look, think, and act like me – it’s just that God does.
