Soldier Boy


 

A Soldier boy walks to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

Turned to his mother and smiled

He turned backed around and promised it’ll only be a while

Until he’d come home

So the brave soldier boy set out alone

To protect what he loved the most

His Home

 

A Soldier boy stares out to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

Now in sight of the battlefield

His hands on the weapon that he’d wield

He starts ache for his mother’s touch and to turn around

But he promised himself to stand his ground

He had to stay until the outcome

To know who would have won

 

A Soldier boy marches to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

A brave soldier boy stayed to fight a war

Just like his fathers before

He’d never return home

For what was precious, he gave up everything he owned

For the face of war is unreal

The scars made would never heal

 

 

A Soldier boy marched to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he’s wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

A brave soldier boy marched away from home

Only to die alone

But his mark has forever stained the ground

On that of the battle field

His soul freely roams, no longer bound

Fore as he promised, he never fell or kneeled

A brave soldier boy who was a boy when this all began

Lived and died as a brave, brave man
