A Soldiers Wife
As she sits there on the edge of the bed
Holding onto sweet memories, going through her head
She has their babies asleep in the next room
But remembers back when they was just bride and groom
She takes the kids to visit his mother
Together they hold hands and pray for a son and a lover
It's been too long now since he first left
For his tour of duty at his counties request
She talks with others who have loved ones over there
Helping to support each other with loving care
Sometimes she breaks down when the kids ask 'when is dad coming home? '
She wishes ...
Each day just when the sun goes down,
And there is no one else around,
Is when the vampires comes out to play;
But really, she is hunting prey.
She haunts the shadows of the night,
Searching for the type that's just right;
She has the thirst to drain your blood.
She'll give you fatal hickeys, bud!
