A Soldier's Diary

Home Sweet Home
I miss you when I am away
Dad, Sis, Mom
I miss you when I am alone

I miss your love so much
That younger brothers
That elder brother's punch -
It comes hard onto me
And stops halfway

The beloved's smile
That stops my heartbeat, for a while
And that picture on the wall
I have the same picture here with me
Which contains us all............................................................

I am so happy, when I get a holiday
... and I am on my way
But I have to be back
At any time, the enemy may attack

I have to hold the line
... for the nation's pride
And lay my life
... if the need arise

I fight for the people...
I fight for your sake...
So that you are safe
While I'm here, in these hard circumstance

I'm always vigilant, leaving nothing to chance
What gives me strength...?
It's will power, patriotism and fellow army men
What gives me power
- is the picture of us all

My only prize..
... is the smile on everybody's face
... in the picture of us all
That I carry always

For your tomorrow, I give my today
