POEM "TO AN ARMY MOTHER"
Poem included with every quilt
I've sewn a quilt for you and baby
because I thought just maybe
something warm would comfort you
and honor you for all you do.
You, who birthed your child alone
with partner, lover, far from home.
What sadness and joy you must have felt that day
with father, a soldier, so far away.
Let the months fly by and give us peace.
May your courage and hope each day increase.
Soon your soldier will be at your side,
a family filled with Army pride
So wrap your little one in this red, white, and blue,
Army mother, strong and true!
“A quilt begins with scattered pieces, scattered like members of military families around the world,. The finished quilt is the joining of all the pieces to make a whole. Hopefully, soon all our Army families will be whole again.” - Roberta Cerniglia
