A SOLDIER’S LIFE

A soldier’s life is very lonely,
and very few will care;
some will even hurt him,
while others stand and stare.

A soldier’s life is very rough,
he works though the night,
and when our country is threatened,
he’s the one who will fight.

A soldier’s life is full of pride,
and so he’ll go to war,
he may not even know the place,
or even the reason for.

A soldier’s life is filled with heroes,
and I have met a few;
someday there may be another,
my son is a soldier, too.
