UNITED STATES MARINE
By: Katina Prickett
You see him standing there, you know you do.
He's lean and mean, a real fighting machine.
He's tough, he's proud, he'll knock you down.
He's a United States Marine.
To see him now you would never guess that just
a few months ago he was one of the best.
He's fighting his battle all alone, there's nothing
you can do but watch him go. How is it possible,
how can it be, our marine is turning the key. To
heavens door soon he will see. May God bless him
and hold him clolse to his heart, for our hearts are
crying from watching him part. Go with God marine,
walk free from your pain and know that you are
loved each and every day. You fought the battle
with all of your might, but God has made his decision,
and go with him you must. Don't be afraid, walk
toward the light, reach your hand and fill with
delight. The angels are waiting to carry you home.
Your battle is over, you'll feel no more pain. We love
you, dear, as you can plainly see but your place is with
the angels and not with thee. Take your pride and
your courage with you and be all the angel that
only you can be. I miss you already although you're
not gone. But take pride in knowing that your family
loves you and honor you for your courage and strength,
and for the loving man you've become. May God bless
you in your hour of need and make you an angel to watch
over your family forever more.
We love you, Thomas Benjamin White and your
legacy will live on through us. I only hope we
don't let you down. You're one tough act
