These are poems I have written for my soldier and for yours. For all our men and women, who are making sacrifices for our country and other countries. For those who have died mothers, fathers, brothers,sisters, sons, daughters. We are all in this together. Because we love them, honor them. Because our blood races in our veins, and our hearts. When they are away, with anxiety we wait at home with hopes of their return. Fears that we may never see them again. For those who have come home broken, incomplete, shaken. For our veterans who relive what they have seen, over and over again in their minds,their bodies. These are our troops, our blood, United States of America at their best..............God Bless Your Soldier and Mine.
My name is Mirian Nieves Gilbert , I was born July 17, 1969 to Bienvenido and Maria Antonia Nieves and raised in Chicago,Illinois. I'm married to Thomas E. Gilbert a veteran of the US Navy . I am mother to a great son Benny. I'm an artist, poet, crafter. All I have learned has been self taught. I believe that all good things come from God. I don't believe I'd draw the way I do or write the way I do if God hadn't wanted me to.
