Heart and Soul

I talked with a soldier today Of battles in distant lands I saw the strength of mighty men Surrounding this brave man! He was made a leader there brave men followed him on But I saw the sadness in his eyes As he spoke of ones now gone. Such courage filled the stories told Of commands followed out with power Never knowing just what was up ahead Or what they would face each hour. The love shown for the innocent ones Caught up in war fought strong Of little ones carried away from homes Where their parents were now gone. My heart is filled with awe today From the short moments of his words We know so little of what they saw Over there in other worlds. But I walk away a little more secure Knowing such strength is in control For the love he showed for this great land Was in his Heart and Soul.......
