Put Your Arms 'Round Your Soldier - Poem by Philip Lore

Preparing for battle,
I spot check each man,
I love them, lead them,
Do the best that I can.

Life is so short,
In this desert land,
Put your arms 'round your soldier man.
Love 'em and hold 'em,
As long as you can.

He has little comfort,
Lives and dies in the sand,
So, put your arms 'round
Your brave soldier man.
