A Soldier Dies
There’s a swing in the backyard where Jake used to play Grew up and died for his country left his wife and kids here alone Praying still for daddy to come home Maybe God can see me overseas alone he prays Jake bows his head and folds his hands As a bullet hits his leg Send my angel to watch over my family He drops his hat now and falls to his knees This is one soldiers end Send my angel to save them Hear these words Jake cries as they pull towards enemy lines Take my soul, take my life and before we know the power grows Victory is here. Many good times mixed among the tears We will remember the soldier who died Here at home you can hear his baby cry Look at daddy in the picture He saved another’s life She kisses the picture frame And says goodnight
