Traveling Soldier

It's been three days since you've passed away There's a secret box under my bed With every letter you sent me When you were last here You gave me a bouquet of lilies They're my favorite flowers Dried up in a vase Because it would kill me To throw them away I have every plane ticket you ever got Next to your dog tags where your name's engraved Right next to a picture with your smiling face One day I'll see my traveling soldier again Until then I have the memories and the pictures And the pleasure of being yours And I'm pleased with the time you spent in my life
