Coming home from the burning sun

Lost, lonely and looking forlorn

The dusty heat of many days

Sites no longer to be bourn

The prison left behind at last

The marching on sand aflame

The confusion of fear then felt

No holding of useless shame

Shrugging off that heavy coat

Hanging of all duty now done

A heavy price his life did pay

Now hoping for future fun

Heartfelt thank him for all he did

The battles he had to taste

Pay him with love and care

Your life that he kept safe

Coming home from the burning sun

Lost, lonely and looking forlorn

The dusty heat of many days

Sites no longer to be bourn

The prison left behind at last

The marching on sand aflame

The confusion of fear then felt

No holding of useless shame

Shrugging off that heavy coat

Hanging of all duty now done

A heavy price his life did pay

Now hoping for future fun

Heartfelt thank him for all he did

The battles he had to taste

Pay him with love and care

Your life that he kept safe
