Welcome Home Soldier Boy

Food is cooking
Kids are playing
Dog is barking
My hearts swaying
At the news I have received
Feeling stunned and so relieved
My soldier boy is coming back
Safely from this war attack
That's been going on for years
Leaving families crying tears
Waiting for that special day
A loved ones voice is heard to say
I'll be home in a day or two
With open arms for holding you
Tightly never letting go
Joyful tears will start to flow
From my eyes that can now see
My baby boy in front of me
A prayer that I've wished for a while
Since the army took my child
To a far away off place
And a dangerous camp base
My heart now has a joyful beat
And my life is so complete
Knowing he is here for now
But I know someday somehow
He'll be called away again
And more prayers will then be sent
To protect my son and others
Every sister every brother
Moms and dads
Husbands and wives
Please don't let them lose their lives

    Well said, my friend. I wish you well and stand with you in prayer for the safe return all our loved ones sent into battle. Some stories have different endings.... But God is great and listens to our prayers. "Ballad of Sammy Taylor", found in my portfolio is one I am proud to have written..... Jake
