Not just for men

NOT JUST FOR MEN I was there to do a job I had trained for years to do Standing on the front line I could only think of you Bullets flying round my head Mortars landing near My world was full of noises Your voice all I could hear Asking me to keep safe While serving miles from home With all my men around me Still feeling all alone A soldier takes a hit He is lying on the ground Without a second thought from me His body I surround Keeping him from further hurt Is foremost in my mind I drag him to his safety To the danger I am blind This is what I live for Trained for all my life To be a combat soldier And secondly your WIFE.
