Her Child A Soldier

Written by: Karen van Wyk

Her burdened soul, weeps dry tears. 
Longing for the heart of her child. 
A soldier.

Dark treacherous night. 
Hidden plights. 
Sad, saddened life.
Lost again.
Weeping men... Lost sins. 

Forge on, forgiven sights.
And heights.
Quiet stories, unfound glories. 
Oh, the heart of her child.
A soldier.

Dayless sleep, nightless dreams.
Only a man.
Desires arms of peace.
Peace... oh peace, how tragic does it weep.

Hopeful smiles come and pass. 
Again to ravage a life.
Changed.
An invisible cage - holds faith. 
Hope, … anger, … rage, … caged, … at bay.
Visible faces, and unseen places. 
Oh, the truth of her child.
 A soldier.

Her burdened soul, weeps dry tears. 
Longing for the heart of her child... a soldier.
