Today I am sitting here by the phone hoping there is a chance that my soilder will call
Remembering the last time that we had spoke he said” I will be home in a year or two, and honey not to worrie you but if you don’t hear from me just know that I will always love you.
Sometimes it’s not easy, but I am going to think postive with my hopes up so high,
I know I am emotional with out you by myside, I even miss being able to turn over to kiss you in middle of the night,
And when I see that your not there in bed next to me,
Or even when I am walking down the street,
That’s when these silver tears begin to fall, and I just keep hoping you are alright.
Yes I have to believe deep inside that you are alright,
Because there are so many things that will make a grown woman cry, like when her soilder has gone to do his duty for his country. She knows what can happen, but for her soilder she remains so strong to help him carrie on, even when he is not calling,
And these silver tears wont stop falling,
Instead she says to her self, honey I know you are somewhere in the world,
And I imagin seeing you in my dreams as you stand proudly, and bravely in your uniform, fighting for our land.And in your eyes I can see these silver tears sparkling like stars.You may be far way, but I hope you can still feel my love, like I feel your love when I am blue, or just missing you.And I promise to stay strong while you do what you do
And even if I cry a few silver tears.I will carrie you in my heart all day long,
Knowing somewhere in the world there are other military families crying sliver tears,
For there loved ones too,
So today I am going to sit here by the phone,
Knowing I am not alone, and these silver tears wont last too long, because I am strong for us.
