The Light in Their Eyes

tired soldiers 

giving up? 

it's not over 

so keep your chin up 

breath deeply;

calm yourself 

it's not always easy 

make this one count 

find peace;

no matter how fleeting 

find strength 

to keep on fighting 

we both know this isn't for ourselves 

but rather those we left in peace

even though we would rather have them by our sides 

we love the spark of light in their eyes 

and we wouldn't take it for anything 

not for anything. 

and that's what we fight for
