My Plight in Sight

My Plight in Sight

I find myself alone
I was once with many 
Dwindled to a few 
Now a sole survivor

I am huddled here
In the cold 
In this ditch 
That now serves as shelter

It is not my fault 
I did my very best
To help them survive 
To keep them alive

Now I am freezing
My hands shake 
And quiver
As I hold my metal defense

They are all around me now
It is just a matter of time
My thoughts are of home
Of family and that tree in the yard

The odds are not good 
I know they are not
That I will hold your hand
For now it is just a thought

To have and to hold is just a dream
Our baby in my hands 
Something I glean
What happens now is unforeseen

The din of earlier in the day
Gives way to an eerie silence
And here I have to stay 
To see if I will live another day

This is war
And I am a soldier
