to the brave

to the brave

Call of duty

My mummy was so sad today.

She put her arms around my dad,

Softly in his ear, I heard her say,

When you leave, I feel so bad,

Tho, it is with a sense of pride,

That I bid farewell to my man,

I miss you here at my side,

While you’re are fighting in Iraq

I see the tracks of mother’s tears,

Praying he will come back,

His death one of our worst fears,

Fighting terrorism at its core,

Be brave I tell my heart,

Smiling trying not to cry,

Care for mum while we are apart,

He asks as he says good-bye.

    Thinking about our loved ones over there and realise - our lot in life is actually pretty good. yes we have pain but this is nothing compared to living with a gun in your hand, not knowign when the next attack may come.
