A Lost Soldier

He wrapped his arms around me Never wanting to let go I gently whispered in his ear Daddy, when you coming home? He said I'm off to battle today To heal the wounded soldiers cries. I don't know when or if I'll be back The tears began to flood my eyes. As father walked away His smile, it did gleam. His final words to me Became but a nightmare within a dream. The bomb rang out Through the desert air. When the dust did settle They found father there. The soldiers stood at attention They saluted their brother goodbye, And the eagle spread its wings As a true American soldier, had died.
