~ Love For An American Soldier In Iraq ~
I love you so
Yet I must watch you go
As you walked away from me
I shed so many tears
For you are so very dear

Why must there be war at all
I see visions of the fighting in Iraq
You are so far from me
Yet, you will never let them take your soul
For you are forever free

I call out your name
I see beyond God's green earth
An American soldier with a memory
Of something that can only hope to be

In the desert sand,
With the sun upon his face
Dear God, when will I hear of his fate
I am here, and always true
My love, must be a part
Of all that he must do

When I watched you go
There is so much love for you
I need you to know

An American soldier, with the taste of dust
I understand, you must do all that you must
Please come back to me
So I can see your heart and soul
Which is a part of me

Come home from Iraq
Is the prayer I pray
I am with you in the wind and rain
The desert heat and all you meet
God will help you,
I know it's true
My love will keep you strong
You have all of my love
The Lord is blessing you
