I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.


You had to sail across the sea.
Why are you so far away from me?
Time goes by and we get older,
Come back to me my soldier.

I have waited for many weeks
For your letter to finally reach me.
Summer goes by and the days get colder,
Come back to me my soldier.

My heart starts to get weak,
So many tears do I weep.
The days seem to pass slower and slower,
Come back to me my soldier.

I never should have told you to leave.
Now you will never get to see
How I’ve longed to rest my head on you shoulder.
Come back to me my soldier.

My heart still wants me to reach
But without you, I know no peace.
I know right now you want to hold her,
Come back to me my soldier.

I still don’t get why you had to leave.
I thought you said you would always love me.
Without you, I don’t want to grow older,
Come back to me my soldier.

This piece was a school assignment but I just loved it so much I decided to post it on here. This is dedicated to all of the wonderful people fighting for our country and the families who want them to come back safely.
