In love with a Corpsman

It will never get easier
No matter how often I see him leave.
I'm here at home while my Sailor is away
preparing to march off with the Marines.

I'm married to a Navy Doc
who keeps the Marines alive.
He is there to patch them up
so they can make it home to their wives.

I say prayers that he stays safe
and I pray that I stay strong
and I try to make it through the day
even though that day is long.

I understand his duty
I understand he can't be home
I understand that he can't dry my tears
and that I have to go to bed alone.

I'm a Corpsman's wife and it is hard,
but I refuse to wallow.
So no matter where he goes,
I will wait or I will follow.

As difficult as it is
That I can't see my husband every day
I am in love with a Corpsman
and won't have it any other way.
