Obituary


On the 8th day God needed
someone to protect his creation
He made a Marine
He needed someone to get up early,
work all day and well into the night
and never complain
He made a Marine
He needed someone to stand up
against tyranny on foreign shores
He made a Marine
He needed someone who could endure
a great deal of physical and mental pain,
but at a moment's notice smile
at a child who needs comforting

On the 8th day God needed
someone to protect his creation
He made a Marine
He needed someone to get up early,
work all day and well into the night
and never complain
He made a Marine
He needed someone to stand up
against tyranny on foreign shores
He made a Marine
He needed someone who could endure
a great deal of physical and mental pain,
but at a moment's notice smile
at a child who needs comforting
He made a Marine
He needed someone who could stand alone
and never ask why he is alone
He made a Marine
He needed someone to keep the country secure
while children and their parents sleep
He made a Marine
On the 9th day God rested and his Marine stood
by his side to watch and keep the peace in the world
Thank God for Marines
