… He’s leaving again To protect and serve But all I feel is rising nerves Tell me more my heart pounds I can feel it beating in the ground He’s leaving and I’m sad but proud. It’s tough to grow up, even when a child has two parents living full-time in the house with them. Unfortunately for B.D. Springer, life was much different as a child growing up in a military family. As her father fulfilled his duties as a soldier in the army and she attended funerals without knowing why, Springer was often left in the dark with more questions than answers. In a collection of poignant poetry, Springer addresses many of the concerns that young children have when one parent—or both—serve in the military. Her poems explore her fears of not being able to make friends in each new city, her frustrations with being invisible, the bliss of having her father return home, and the emptiness she felt every time he left again. Memoirs of a Military Child shares a unique collection of poems that reflect on the myriad of emotions a child feels when a parent is deployed to a faraway location.
