A Soldier's Eyes
To look into a soldiers eyes, the window to their soul
Look out from the inside of their mind and see horrors never told
You say we are just killers, its not that plain you see
Take a walk inside my boots, and see what I have seen
Many innocent lives taken, and soldiers there were some
Giving their lives freely to get the job done
The last cold stare of death, we see in our buddies eyes
They fought for all your freedom, this is why we die
Some wonder why we fight to protect the nation, and maybe lose our life
Ask this question to a soldier, the answers in his eyes
Always we will be here waiting, the call we wont deny
We'll always fight for freedom, never asking why
We'll go away to far off lands, leaving our loved ones behind
Many times we are alone, several times inside
Open the windows to our souls, see the tears we hide
Secrets we cannot keep, are in a soldiers eyes
God Bless all soldiers, on your side of the pond, and ours.
I wish I could tell each and every one of them how deeply we appreciate them at our house.
I wish I could take that pain away from them.
I wish no soldier ever had to go to war. But I'm thankful that they do.
