Born to my widowed Mother,
Never met my Dad...
I remember growing up that way,
Seeing Mommy look so sad...
At times she'd seem so far away,
When she looked into my face...
Her love for me was always there,
But her heart another place
My Daddy was a Hero...
Helped make our Country free...
Someday I'll be a soldier too,
And make him proud of me!
