My Soldier Boy


If only I could have one wish,
I know what it would be,
To end this dreadful war we're in,
To have you home with me.
I'd wrap my arms around you Son,
And hold you safe and sound,
Thinking of you, every day,
In your battle on the ground.
You've lost so many of your men,
The grief is hard to hide,
But I just want to let you know,
I'm always by your side.
So you take care,
And come home safe,
From that foreign shore,
I long to see your smiling face,
Walking through the door.
