Soldiers Above

Many soldiers have fallen far from home
with their spirits alive, I am never alone.

I am pushed to my limits, to be my very best.
I am proud to be a soldier, and face the ultimate test.

My journey is my reward for my labour of love,
whilst never forgetting those fallen soldiers above.

It’s my children, who I owe the most.
For their gentle whispers that keep me awake,
whilst guarding my post.

My heart races like never before.
a sudden volley of shots break out,
as I shoulder my M4.

Standing tall with those who I truly admire,
in the scilence of night, our section returns enemy fire.

It’s so clear to me now, that nothing is bigger,
than the heart and spirit of a true Aussie digger.

I am proud to wear my uniform, it fits like a glove.
As I walk in the footsteps of those fallen soldiers above.
