Proud Mom

Proud Mom

Written by Karen Lesure


Proud Mom

As a Mom, of a son
in the National Guard
Mixed feelings are with me
and make my days hard

You raise up your child
and protect them each day
But they grow up too soon
and from home go away

We teach them the basics
the wrongs and the right
So I never expected
that soon he would fight

When I say that he fights
I don't mean with just fist
But fights for our freedom
with the Guard he'd enlist

With a promise to us
he vowed to defend
Our country, America
to make terrorism end

So, now in a land
far away called Iraq
I pray Lord, please watch him
and bring my son back

Written for my son Sgt. Robert M Toner ( PAANG )
