The Power of Eight
It was in the eighth month
That I first counted his fingers and toes
All perfectly formed
That babe of mine.
It was in the year 08
That he graduated from high school
Ready to challenge the world
And to venture forth.
And in his eighth year of service
Fort Jackson, Fort Hood, Fort Knox, and Fort Campbell
Overseas deployments numbering two
He’s now a second lieutenant.
In the year 18
A college graduate
Ready for the next chapter
With his family every growing!
