A Marine's Mother

My feelings when my son came home from Marine Basic Training

Just the other day, it seems
you were still my little boy
chasing butterflies and dreams
with the effervescent joy
of childhood. But today
you return and what a change--
not the youth I sent away
but a man, completely strange.

"Mom, we call this 'dress blues'..."
Whose is this stern-eyed face?
From close-clipped hair to shining shoes
who is this man in my son's place?
There's so much I can't recall:
When did your voice become so deep?
When was it you grew so tall?
Was I blind or just asleep?

Yesterday your gun was a toy--
Today you stand out above the crowd
and this man, grown from my boy,
is making me so sad, so proud....

hello Gwynn, I read your poem,"A Marine's Mother". Your pride does show and rightfully so. Our war heroes living and not are important. We should always be thankful for their sacrifices. Wishing you all the best. Please feel free to visit my site here in the "Den"

Once a marine always a marine they say. My cousin's husband is a former marine and has organized marine reunions each year at different places for his unit. Many attend. They went to Alaska on a cruise last year.

I can understand the wave of mixed emotions. Our young boys go from one extreme to the other, and back again as time gives them new experiences.

I guesss you share the thoughts of so many mothers whose sons and daughters are in the middle east today - instead of the UN forces.
You have a beautifully Welsh name - that must explain your love for poetry and words!
Well done

I had the same feeling when I saw nephews and young cousins recently come home in uniform. They grow so fast and have so much information so young. Bless them all.
