I found this:
Navy Wife’s Prayer
Dear Lord, give me greatness of heart to see,
The difference between duty and his love for me.
Give me a task to do each day,
to help pass the time while he is away;
Give me the understanding, so that I may know,
That when duty calls he must go;
And, Dear Lord, when he goes out to sea,
please bring him home safely to me.
and it really made me feel better.
Also here’s another which had several Navy Wife poems that I thought were up-lifting and sympathetic. http://www.submarinewivesclub.org/poems/poems.html Sometimes I just want someone to just agree with me that life sucks even though I know it won’t always feel this way. I’m feeling better now and not so alone.
