Time to celebrate
For Johnny came marching home
From dreadful war zone.

Safe again, my son
Fills my empty waiting arms
Now I breathe again.

G. K. Bostic - 4/8/11


  1. Gloria, hooray, he's home safe!! Please thank you son for his service and let him know that this old leftie pacifist supports the troops 100%. It's his superiors I have problems with. Anyone who dons the uniform gets the respect of more old hippies than you'll know.
    Peace, in our time, Amy (and a silly poem)

  2. Glad he's home--
    Let me second sharp little pencil's thoughts

  3. Celebrating with you...
    and joining Amy and Marginalia with my gratitude for his service.

  4. Thank you all!! This was his third tour and each one has been for a year....and each one I've found myself more anxious. It is definitely a time for celebration having him home. He and his wife have been apart too much! I will pass your words along to him, and thank you again!!!

  5. That is a wonderful way to celebrate! I'm happy for you, Gloria! Oh, how wonderful it is to know that family is a blessing and a gift! :) We all need that reminder every now and then.

    Also, thank you so much for visiting my Livejournal and for taking the time to read my poem at

    Blessings to you, your son, and your family! :)

  6. Gloria, so glad he is home. I have a son-in-law who was in Iraq three times. He has six more years, as career army. I pray he won't be sent to another war zone, but that is unlikely.
