On Mother Elaine

On Mother Elaine


On Mother Elaine (Mother of Military Wives)
Here we are on this Message Board.
We come here for uplifting support.
A sisterhood spread far and wide
'Cause to our men we've said goodbye.
Military Wives all are we
Through email, on land, sky, and sea.
The frail yet the strong we are
Together, our men have gone afar.
Through the tempest of our lives
She is The Woman of military wives.
God, we lift up one to thee,
And beloved Mother Elaine is she.
She shelters us in time of storm
She's the sun when we're forlorn.
She gives us harbor from sorrow's waves,
And coaxes us out of our dreary caves.
On Mother Elaine, this I'll say
You give brightness to our day
By militantly keeping the motherly way
Come whatever... come what may.
