This son is mine

I hid my smile
Because you were sad
I tried to comfort you
But inside I'm so glad

"It's just not fair"
You shouted out loud"
"I wanted to go, 
to make you so proud"

"Dont worry son
Your better of here"
A relief I felt
Released from my fear

"It's what I trained for"
"It's all I know"
Thank you lord
For not letting him go

"You'll get a job"
"There's lot's of thing's you can do"
"But I'm a soldier mum"
"My buddies , The time's we've been through"

"I will pray for your buddies
Please god keep them safe
But you are my son
I  can not lose you

It was totally stupid
I just twisted the wrong way
Torn muscle's in your back
Is all the doctor's could say

So I'm sorry son
That your feeling such pain
But your back will get better
And you'll be well again

It's such a shame you hurt your back
     Inside I smile
But,   It stopped  you  son
From being sent, to fight in Irac

And I'm sorry,  so sorry
For the people, who are there
But this son is mine
I'm a mother, I care
