A Soldiers Reason

I can remember the first time that I
saw your smiling face,
I held you close to my heart you could
probably hear it race.
I changed your first diaper, and I know
it took a while.
youre daddy's baby boy and youre the
perfect child.
It's been about two months now, and I
don't have much to give.
so daddy must leave for a while so that
you may live.
When I come back son I know you won't
remember me,
but we'll build a bond at the fishing
pond with unforgetable memories.
It's time for me to go now son to build
a soldiers legacy.
To fight a war in another land someday
you will be proud of me.
Not so much for country, not so much
for pride.
But for you my baby boy, for your
future I would die.
