There is Nothing Like a Marine

There is nothing like a Marine.
His emotions are inpenatrable
yet his shoulders are soft for those that need someone to lean on.
His hands are firm yet know exactly where they need to be.
If he has his arms wrapped around you
you're either in the last moments of your life or the safest place you could ever be.
He's stubborn but will let you have your way just to see you smile.
He's deadly with a rifle and gentle with a child.
He plays poker with the devil but guards the gates of heaven.
He curses like no other but is a perfect gentleman.
He has a thousand yard stare
but when you look into his eyes its the most comforting thing you've ever felt.
The Marine Corps trained him as a weapon but raised him as a lover.
He knows Every part of an M-16 as well as he knows every curve of his woman.
There is no other man like him.
Whether you love him or hate him both is a priviledge.
He could be your worst nightmare or your sweetest dream.
He is a United States Marine.
