I'm a Blue Star Mom

I'm A Blue Star Mom

We wear our hearts on our sleeves
You see the tears in our eyes
You know we are hurting
But you don't ask us why
 
We start each new day
With a prayer on our lips
That our babies are all safe
In the air, on the ground and in ships
 
We fly all our flags and
We wear all our pins
Waiting for the day
Our child soldier comes in
 
We have our bad days
At work and at home
Trying hard not to cry
Until we're alone
 
We think of them always
We pray they are safe
We dread that one phone call
The car and the wait
 
We are Mothers doing now
As Military Mothers have been
Pledging Allegiance to our Country
Our Armed Forces Women and Men
 
We want you to know
That it's no easy task
To let go of what you cared for
And know they might not last
 
So whenever you see us
Wearing our Ribbons and Blue Stars
Know that we are just waiting
For our Soldier, our baby, our heart.
