A Soldier's Tear

“A Soldiers Tear”

A Soldier says a prayer, while hearing loud echo’s here and there.
Bombs, gunfire and cries around. Barely, do the thoughts take over the sounds.
First duty, protecting the other who looks back, ahead, and around. 

Take my hand, the soldier hears, I used to be where you stand, for many years,
In this unforgiving land. But never forget that I will walk by your side. I will honor 
you and never let you forget, we feel gratitude love and pride. I will be by your side, 
today and tomorrow. I know your tears and sorrow will follow.

A soldier says a prayer. Still hears the echo’s here and there.
First duty, protecting the other who looks back, ahead, and all around. Take my hand, 
the soldier hears, I used to be where you stand, for many years, In this foreign land.
But don't forget that I will walk by your side. I will honor you and never let you forget, 
we feel gratitude love pride and respect.

It will never fade or go away. Today, tomorrow or any day.
Bombs, gunfire and cries all around. Memories and fond faces far off distant places. 
A soldier’s tear can be heard from here, and there, and all around. Dry your tears...
Your home Safe and sound.
