You helped me lay it down
Copyright River Dawson 2016
 
As a boy I was a lonely soul,
A prince without a crown
Those years were one of my burdens
You helped me lay it down
 
Friends in war I'd not leave behind,
Where they fell on the battleground,
This too another burden
You helped me lay it down.
 
All the things war took from me
The pain, the wounds, blood on the ground
Another burden for me to carry
You helped me lay it down.
 
The ghosts that haunted me at night,
Kills and friends shot down,
You drove them all out of my life
You helped me lay it down.
 
It was not toughness or soldiering
That saved me from the sand,
But a loving touch of a lady,
Your loving gentle hand.
