Wish You Were Home

Hey Guys, I’m sorry you’re over there.
You should be over here with your families.
I know you wish you were.
Christmas isn’t the same without the ones you love to share it with.
So many people hustle in worry of getting presents.
The perfect gift.
All you really need is to be there, and you’ve got more than you need.
But hey guys, I wish I could tell you how proud I am of you.
And how much I wish this would all stop so that you could be home for Christmas.
It’s a day of celebrating the birth of Christ,
And you have to spend it fighting for a country
Who’s too selfish and self-centered to think about what you’re going through.
Instead of how it costs to get the gas to go to the mall for Christmas shopping.
Guys, I hope it’s all over soon.
May you have a good Christmas and please know someone cares, I do.
