I Will (Shield You With Love)

Poetry By: zadudet1
Song lyrics

It's written about a soldier from the girl left behind's perspective. It is derived from my own fears of my boyfriend going overseas to fight. Though it's only a possibility at the moment, I wrote this to work out my feelings.

You've been there for me

Never scared, never afraid

Try to keep me safe

Protect me from harm

So now I will do the same

I will put on a brave face

I will not show my fear

I will pray for your safety

I will shield you with love

It's not much comfort

When you're over there

Bullets can't be stopped

With my undying love

But it's all I can give

I will smile through the pain

I will laugh when I want to cry

I will act tougher than I am

I will shield you with love

I know you will come home

I have to believe it's true

Without this great hope

Life would be far too hard

So I will wait for you return

I will wait for you

I will be a solider too

I will fight for faith

I will shield you with love
