That Soldier

It is down to the last minute until
your soldier says goodbye
He picks up his belongings and he's
walking out that door
If only we had one more day to
share our time once more
One last hug and one last kiss
the tears starts to flow
I don't see a soldier
I see the man I married
walking out that door
The children are crying
and saying, daddy please don't go
This job you do is very important indeed
trying to help another country have
their freedom just like me
My one and only prayer to the Lord
"Is to keep you safe and out of danger
and bring you home once more".
