The truest words, which portray my love, 
I speak to you from within my heart. 
May we always recall how we feel,
Though through conflict we're forced to part.

No one can say how long they will last, 
For life is not everlasting.
Yet most hope to be blessed by love, 
By he who does our casting.

As the fear of battle bites my flesh, 
My thoughts of home help keep me sane.
There’s no guarantee that I’ll survive 
But either way, I'll serve without shame.

Should the cold hands of death reach for me, 
I pray my soul will awake from sleep.
To the voice of God assuring me, 
That my spirit, he's chosen to keep.

So try to remember while I'm gone, 
That the person I need most is you.
I’ll fight like hell to stay alive 
To return home to the love I knew.
