SISTER’S PLEA

I will stand with you, my brother
God made us, two by two.
What I can do, let me do, for you.
We can become a masterful team,
causing bright freedom to beam.
The torch is burning as bright,
in my hand, as it is in yours.
Let us deal with war’s chores
Proudly, let me stand with you, my brother
Do not wish that you could send me home
I do not want to go, leaving you alone
I need to stand with you, my brother
If I fall there may be children, left motherless,
as yours are left fatherless, when you may fall
I am a soldier just like you, ready to give my all
Allow me, please, to stand with you, my brother
