Our Freedom

Our Freedom
 
We were made for each other
 
 
I still dream of you when I close my eyes....
 
 
Our hearts still beating together....
 
 
Looking at wedding pictures of you and I....
 
 
I still think you’ll walk through our door....
 
 
Even though I know you cant do that....
 
 
You were protecting our country on sand that was your floor....
 
 
None of you in that truck lived after the attack....
 
 
I will always keep your memory with me....
 
 
Honey I am still very proud of all our soldiers....
 
 
Freedom for us is what they still fight for you see....
 
 
Seven years they still fight and die for this war....
 
 
I still think its time for them to come home....
 
 
So many families everyday breaking....
 
 
For the ones who wont make it back home....
 
 
The news says terrorist are weaking....
 
 
I sure hope that is true....
 
 
So many soldiers have fallen....
 
 
On our second tour its been you....
 
 
I know everyone of you went to heaven....
