A Chaplin and an officer came today
Her husband is now an MIA

She knows “missing in action” is the meaning of that acronym
She also knows she may never see him again

In two months his child she will bear
A daughter who may never know her father
This is so unfair

Twenty years have passed his daughter is now grown
She has spent her childhood waiting for her father to come home

All the milestones in her life he has missed
For him to be home on her wedding day she has wished

Her wish has come true
Her father will be home for her wedding day
His remains have been identified he is
No longer MIA
