Military Child Free Verse

As you sit in the classroom on your last day

Your friends comfort you as they wish you could stay

The night before you were informed you must move away

This is the life of a military child, so hope and pray.


This group of people you call friends will soon be gone

You will feel lost and won’t know where you belong

It will be ok to cry on this very day

This is the life of a military child, so hope and pray


As you move to this new place you’ll feel as if you don’t belong

Everything will be ok if you refer back to this song

As you pack your bags and head to the airport although you want to stay

This is the life of a military child, so hope and pray
