Connecticut State Police

"My Trooper"

Connecticut State Police Academy

My love, my life, my Trooper
As I watch you on this day
My heart is filled with pride for you
You've made it all the way.

You've trained for months for this one day
It's been no easy feat
Your life begins anew today
This badge makes you complete,

I've loved you since the first we met
In body, mind and soul
For better or for worse we vowed
Our hearts in union, whole.

As you dress in your new uniform
Your cover, vest and gun
Just know I'll pray that every day
You'll return to me, my love.

I'll be so proud of your career
As I am on this very day
You'll make our world a better place
A place where I'll feel safe.

When you leave I'll say, " Be careful love"
And kiss your lips again
Embrace you, heart to heart, my love
My husband, my best friend.

And as you drive away each day
I'll pray to Him above
Lord return to me, my Trooper
My life, my heart, my love...
