A Letter Home


You're a note sent from heaven,

To this battle field in hell.

I wish I could kiss you here

and the worries farewell.


Every letter written carefully

By a steady hand in ink.

I hold your picture to my heart,

You are my missing link.


I'm hopelessly lost in this never ending war

There's guns and fighting all around;

I promised you I'd come home

And to that promise I am bound.


Should my heart stop beating

Because a bullet is through my chest,

I'll be home at some point,

Please lay me down to rest.
