When Daddy Comes Home

by Megan Johnson



A Christmas tree, tall and green,

A little child, small and lean,

Watching, waiting, hoping,

For daddy to come home.


An army tent, cold and lonely,

No presents waiting to open,

No family, no Christmas feast,

A soldier, tall and strong,

Crying from pain, loneliness,

Wishing to go home.


A family separated,

Wishing for peace,

For war to end,

For daddy to come home.


Christmas, a time for family,

Spent far away from them,

Risking their lives,

To protect everything,

Their country, their freedom,

Wanting to go home.


Happiness, love, joy,

When daddy came home.
