Soldier's Goodbye

Bullets were flying
All around
No time to duck
As I hit the ground

The blood was flowing
Don't ask why
But I wasn't fighting for my life
I wanted to die

No reason to live
No family back home
Better to die here
Than home alone

Stressin' fro home
More than here
The thought of dying
Suppresses the fears

So, when I die
Shed no tears
Know I died with honor
And showed no fear

Through my death
I'll save a life
Helping another Soldier
Return to his faithful wife

Though I've died
I'm not alone
I'm with my Brothers
They'll carry me home

Although I'm being
Put to rest
Please don't cry
For I did my best

I did not go easy
It was a hell of a fight
My war is over now
This is my last night

I'll watch from above
I will not sleep
Til my Brothers come home
No combat boots on their feet

So, this is it
I'm saying good bye
I love you all
For this will be the last time I write
