I will miss you, Daddy, until I meet you.
When you come back, we can play.
I can show you all my toys
And you can tell me stories.
Maybe then Mommy won’t cry as much.

I will miss you, Father, until I meet you.
If you come back, we can hunt.
I can show you all I’ve learned
And you can show me more.
Maybe then Mother won’t cry as much.

I will miss you, Angel, until I meet you.
For you will not come back.
But someday, I too will die
And we’ll all be together.
Maybe then Your Widow won’t cry as much.

I will miss you, Soldier, until I meet you.
For you have finally returned
But you are hard and I do not know you.
Someday, maybe the calluses of the battle will soften.
And maybe then I won’t cry as much.
