The price of a good mans life

It just does not seem possible or right
He was in the spring of his life
When he went off to war and died in the night

There was a man who had murder in his eyes
He was determined that night to take a life
He did it with a car bomb, damn it just ain’t right

My son’s name was honor, hero, and patriot
However that night a coward took his life
His CO said he was gallant, and fought with all of his might

I am in the autumn of my years, fraught with horror and tears
I look at my son’s casket and think what a waste of a life
His buddies said that if it weren’t for him, they all would have died that night

Winter has come into our home far too soon
Because, yet another terrorist took a good man’s life
It must be winter my insides are frozen and it just ain’t right

I love you my only beloved son I don’t think I can bear the pain
I know you loved your country, and for this you gave your life
I dread tomorrow because you see, we bury you at first mornings light
