All tin soldiers in a row
They fall, fall like dominoes
And soak the earth in liquid life
Writing history with a knife
Wreaking sorrow, weaving strife

Silver tears are shed at home
Our hearts, with our soldiers, roam
And while they fall to the ground
Oh, how our spirits spiral down
Dark strands of conflict, a woven art
But stand strong, don't lose heart
No matter how far we are apart

Remember we're waiting, waiting for you
Wondering what there is that we can do
We won't forget, not ever, my dear
Never content lest you are here
Praying for you 'neath the cold moonlight
You fill our dreams, both day and night
Circling our hearts like a satellite

This is fantastic, I love your rhyme scheme, your word choice and your meter- an overall ace! It takes a lot of skill with the metaphorical pen to make something so awful sound so pretty. Our hearts are all overseas with out troops- never forget!

I love this, It is moving and somewhat, just a little bit, mysterious. I love the last stanza, especially the line "we won't forget, not ever, my dear". Great job.

Would you please comment on "A World Gone Mad" for me? It is another war ballad, but I don't think I did it half as well as you did.
