A soldier lay dying for his country

A soldier boy was calling me His faint cry heard all around The air was still and silent And dusty sand lay on the ground. The far outstretched plains lay before me Carried on for miles ahead. And many a soldier's body could be seen Although most of them lay dead. But still a soldiers voice called out Which i could faintly hear. But with so many bodies strewn around I wasn't sure of which cried out in his fear. But still I kept on reassuring him With only words that could not explain How much I really feared for his life And if in death he would die from pain. Then I saw a movement Just slightly but it didn't go unseen. Now I could rescue our country's hero And give back to him a life that'd been. For we must protect our country men Who in a war for their land have bravely fought. A true hero who's life he gave willingly In their fight for freedoms rights their land sought.
