my iraq soldier

Written by: christie mills

I'am always thirsty.
Yerning for your love. 
Though you are so far away.
your all i'am thinking of.

The days are long and lonely. 
The nights are restless.
The children fight.
The money is tight.
And all I think of is you.

You made a sacrific. 
For all the world to see.
But you've always been a hero,
To our children and to me!

Do not be a hero. 
Keep your head down low.
I will be there with you.
My heart will follow where ever you may go.
