A Marine to be

Dear my sweet brother
though we are far and far
distance has no place
in our doting hearts

Your graduation day is closer than it seems
a few more weeks and you will be a marine
but until then
when home seems tempting
and times are tough
just think of the day you receive your emblem
oh the pride to come

When the sky is dark
and there is time to think
look up at the stars
we can discern the same scene
and maybe that can bring you to peace

But if I tell you one thing
let it be, don't give up
you've worked so hard
and this is all you have ever wanted
so keep your head up
my future marine
