Three Years


You sail to Japan

A completely foreign land

With a band

Of brothers


Blue surrounds you

What will you do

Except what they tell you

They are in charge


You think of home

And all you've known

It chills you to the bone

Oh how you miss them so


You hear muffled cries

From some of the other guys

For their past lifes

And for missing their family


Three years drag

Until you carry your bags

Suffering from jet lag

Through the airport


She stands and smiles

And keeps it together while

Her heart beats a mile

A minute


You served your country bravely

While being in the Navy

You smile and say "Baby,

I'm home."
