A true fighter

 
He goes to war for his country
To come back with respect
He goes to war for his country
To come back to see his loved ones

He loves his family
His wife
His 2 children
With one coming on the way

He hasnít seen his wife and two kids
In 8 months
His youngest is 1
Yesterday

He wished he could see her
He wondered if his baby girl would remember him
He wanted to watch his baby girl grow up

He'd stand in the rain
Wondering
What his family was doing

He sits there,
Counting his scars
Wondering how may more he would get that day

Hes a hero
Fighting for his country

He'd stay up all night staring
At a picture
Of his wife and children

Later that year he was missing in action

No where to be seen

That was the end of our hero

He was found
In a trench
Shot
With purple lips

But still alive

And he is now to this day

70 years later
