I am a Blue Star Mother
I am the mother of a soldier in the
United States Army.
He gave me my title.
I will give him a heart full of wonder at his accomplishments
and a voice that praises his desire to serve.
I will place my faith in his military training
and in God's protection.
I will give him the prayers that will follow him where I cannot.
I will be strong when I want to cry
and brave when I want to cower.
He will know I am behind him
every step of the way
because I bear the title
Mother of a United States Soldier.
