This is a layout I created for the No Pic challenge. The letter is from my dad who was in the Navy stationed aboard ship in the south Pacific during WWII. It was written to my mom in March of 1945 and included the following poem. I don't think it's original but haven't found any info on it yet.
Dear God, watch over her for me,
That she may safely guarded be.
Help her each lonely hour to bear,
As I would, Lord, if I were there.
When she is sleeping, watch her then,
That fear may not her dreams offend.
Be ever near her through the day,
Let naught but goodness come her way.
Sweet faithful one, she waits for me,
Beyond the wide and spacious sea.
Be merciful, oh Lord, I pray,
Take care of her while I'm away.
Love, Your Russ
