A Lonely Soldier

Poetry By: angel plant

A lonely soldier all alone away from home no place to call his own. Has to make new friends. Has to get up early work out when told.

A lonely soldier

All alone

Away from home

No place to call his own

Has to make new friends

No way to get in touch for awhile

Has to get up early

Work out when told

Out in the fields

Days and weeks at a time

No food or water at times

Sleep in fox holes

He is lost

Does not know how

He feels

A lonely soldier

Has to watch for enemies

Kill them to

If need be

He wonder's if he can do it

He sees so much sorrow

And so much pain

No happiness

For the country he's in

Sometime's at night

He cries in his sleep

For the little one's left in the street

Has dreams so bad

A lonely soldier

He feels left out

Like no one care's

The life of a soldier

He is brave

He is strong

Working to keep

Us safe from harm

He put's his fear

To rest

Put's his life on

The line

Just to serve his Country

It is his duty

This he knows

A lonely soldier

Has a girlfriend back home

Wonder's if she will wait

For his return

A lonely soldier

He wants so much

To hold her again

Say I Love You

Will you marry me?

That is the life of

A lonely soldier

Not knowing what

Will happen
