Hey Soldier

Hey Soldier,
You're gone from me for now,
A distance way too far.

Hey Soldier,
I miss you,
I dream of your arms around me again.

Hey Soldier,
I love you,
Have since the day we met.

Hey Soldier,
I got the letter today,
the one that says you won't be back.

Hey Soldier,
I got the flag today,
The day they laid you in the ground.

Hey Soldier,
We miss you,
How do I make your children understand?

Hey Soldier,
I'm writing for you,
Now the world knows your story.
