GOLD STAR MOTHERS

 

Jerry Calow 

  Gold Star Mothers... A Proud and Honored Creed
  How Can You Not Be Totally Torn Apart
  When the Knock Comes Frighteningly at Your Door
  And Your life Goes Permanently on Hold
  Your Body Trembles Uncontrolled
  As Your Tears Flood Deep into Your Soul
  And Your Heart  Aches Worst Than Ever Before
  You Well Know Now Your Son Wonıt be Coming Home

   CHORUS:

          Gold Star Mothers...
          No-One Knows How They Feel
          Gone Unnoticed But Undoubtedly Real
          Gold Star Mothers...
          Carry Their Stars In Esteem
          In Memory Of Their Sons
          Who died Over Seas

  This Emptiness Becomes Unbearable to Console
  And the Sadness Pummels From Every Side
  The Hurt You Feel Words Cannot Describe
  And Your Misery Wonıt Stop Gnawing Inside
  Your Emotions Reel To Fragile to Confide
  And in Your Darkest Moments Thereıs No Tears to Cry
  And The world Turns But Yours is Upside Down............CHORUS:

  So You Cling to Images Of a Son You Raised and Watched Grow
  Turning Into a Young Man Ready to Take on Lifeıs Throes
  You Look at His Pictures A Father and Mother Well Know
  You Cherish the Moment He Smiled and Said  ³ Good-By ³
  You Hang on to His Keepsakes Treasures to Behold
  All These Loved Memories Way More Precious Than gold
  This is Your One Refuge You Donıt Have to Concede...... CHORUS:

  Then You Turn to Your Husband Your Partner Confidant
  To Help Ease the Pain And Give You Strength to Go On
  And You Wonder, How Can Life Be Worth Living For
  When You Wake Up in the Morning And Reality is Your Worst Nightmare
  And You Question How The Maker Could be so Unfair
  Then You Think  of Your Son Who Gave All to Him
  For the Freedom That We All Enjoy On a Whim!............CHORUS:

  Then You Find the Light That Guides You From Above
  And Your Mission Becomes To Keep Your Sons Memory Alive
  To Remind Us For What and Why He Died
  In the Minds of Nations And All of Living Mankind
  In the Hopes That the World Can Turn Darkness Into Light
  And Make It a Better Place As In the Beginning of Time
  For the Love of Freedom And a Mothers Peace of Mind.....CHORUS:
