Leave A Light On Poem by Megan Lacey


Leave a light on!
My bold soldier boy
Will be coming home soon
I'll leave a light on.

Leave a light on!
There is no telling where he might be-
Oh! Leave a light on!
Just in case he is coming back home to me:
I'll leave a light on.

Leave a light on-
It eases the ache in my heart
As the battles rage on.
Please, please leave a light on.

Leave a light on.
Those who watch over the dead-
Know to leave a light on.
For the dying the darkness holds dread.
So we'll leave a light on.

Leave a light on!
For the sweetheart who'll never come home...
I'll leave the light on...
