Little Soldier Boy


Little Soldier boy, fight hard.
Fight for your country, your family, your friends.
Fight for me, little soldier boy.
Keep your head high, your spirit strong.

Be safe, little soldier boy.
Return in one piece.
And if the Lord should take you home,
then so be it.

We love you, little soldier boy.
We pray for you every night.
And hope to hold you tight soon.
I love my little soldier boy.

Come home little soldier boy.
Come back to your family.
Come back to me.
My little soldier boy.

Come home soon.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
