Liberty and Freedom
I kiss you good-bye over and over
Clinging to you tears staining the well worn in uniform,
My chest is heavy but my heart weighs more
As we part ways with one last kiss.
Good-Bye my love carry my heart with you
As you fight for our Liberty and Freedom.
Sleepless nights and tear soaked pillows
Hoping for a peaceful night,
Restless child sad and confused
Not quite old enough to know,
Daddy is off fighting for our Liberty and Freedom.
Worried mothers watching the news
Lonely wives praying for the Marines in Blues to pass by
Not to knock on my door.
It is the worst news we can receive,
Your Marine died fighting for our Liberty and Freedom.
