My Soldier Son

Written by: Maggie Mae McAfee

He is a soldier through and through
Serving our country abroad unselfishly
He is brave but not without caution of view
He must be strong yet very leary

Serving our country abroad unselfishly
Aware of enemies unforeseen by him
He must be strong yet very leary
They hide among his surroundings of dim

Aware of enemies unforeseen by him
He moves with stealth to help protect you
They hide among his surroundings of dim
He walks perimeters with focused fear of few

He moves with stealth to help protect you
They watch with harmful, cruel intentions
He walks perimeters with focused fear of few
They'll pounce with chance of intervention

They watch with harmful, cruel intentions
He is brave but not without caution of view
They'll pounce with chance of intervention
He is a soldier through and through
