A Soldiers Letter ~
My Dear Son, How are you on this
This is your Daddy and I'm still in a land far away.
I'm afraid I wont make it home in time for your birthday son
Because Daddy's soldier work here is not yet done.
Did you know there are little girls and boys over here
Who never get to go outside and play because of fear?
They don't get to run and play like you do everyday
So your soldier daddy has come to this land far away.
To help them live and play free
Just like you and mommy and me.
Don't forget tonight when you kneel and
To thank God for the freedom you enjoy everyday.
I promise you son as soon as my soldier job here is done
I'll be coming home to you and mommy just as fast as I can run.
