I'm a Military Child

I'm a Military Child

by Landon Richardson
Humphreys West Elementary School

I moved to a new house
I went to a new school
I hugged Dad and watched him leave
I wrote Dad letters

I moved to a new house
I got new teachers
I miss my family
I watched Dad leave again

I moved to a new house
I made new friends
I miss Dad so much
I am Happy because Dad came home on a white bus

I moved to a new house
I waved bye to Dad's airplane
I get to video my Dad and he misses me too
I pray that God keeps my Dad safe
