A Soldiers Letter ~
My Dear Son, How are you on this fine day?
This is your Daddy and Iím still in a land far
Iím afraid I wont make it home in time for your
Because Daddy's soldier work here is not yet
Did you know there are little girls and boys
Who never get to go outside and play because of
They donít get to run and play like you do
So your soldier daddy has come to this land far
To help them live and play free
Just like you and mommy and me.
Hey, thank you for the picture of you and the
you tied out on the tree
Son, you have no idea how much
that picture means to me.
Well, I have to go now
itís time for your soldier daddy to lend a hand
To help the other soldier daddies bring freedom
to the people of this land.
So give your mommy a big hug for me
and keep one for yourself
Remember son my spirit is always with you
itís in my picture on your shelf.
Donít forget tonight when you kneel and pray
To thank God for the freedom you enjoy everyday.
I promise you son as soon as my soldier job here
Iíll be coming home to you and mommy just as
fast as I can run.
