Thanks for the insight on not asking when they will be home. I can see it from their side, being painful when you cannot give an answer, knowing your loved one is hurting to. (at least I am TRYING to see it from their side) I have asked that of my FF when he comes home for the few hours I get to see him, and I have felt guilty.
I will just try to stick to “I look forward to when you can be home longer” or something like that.

Thanks for the note on the poem, too. *blush*

My mum critiqued my last one, and has rewritten it.
Here is my mum’s version:

The Dragon it hungers.
The Dragon it burns.
For destruction only
It appears that it yearns.

As with the Phoenix,
Both nature and man
Will rise from the ashes
As is the plan.

Renewed, refreshed
Under sky now so blue,
Beloved firefighters,
>From our hearts we thank you!
I like hers better, don’t you? >G<
