One Day

This post is for my fellow sojourners in this military life.

We will one day settle down,
not our hearts - for those are set
but to a place, a town.

One day we will have our fill
of checkerboard moves,
revolving views,
and neighbors we wave to
on weekends, as we fetch 
the Sunday paper.

We will settle down one day.
We will linger with our neighbors,
and bemoan the somber news
of Sunday's headlines, and 
children we pray
will find their way.
