~ One of Our Own~

One of our own was called to serve
To the war across the sea;
It broke our heart the day you left
But we knew it had to be.

I sit here alone thinking about you
I miss you so much you must know.
I love you forever my dear,
No matter wherever you go!

Our country called you to duty
And I know you'll serve it proud;
But, I can't stop the teardrops
That fall like rain from the clouds.

I wish that you were here with us,
But we know that cannot be;
For our country, God called you to serve,
The land of the proud and the free!

All my love and prayers I send
To you across the sea;
I know that God will guide your way,
For in His arm is where you'll be.

The times our fears loom so large
We long for proof that God is near;
It is then our Father says to us,
Have faith, my child and do not fear.

'Till you are safe beside us once more
I just want to let you know.
That I am mighty proud of you
And that I miss you so.
