He had loyalty
He had honor
He had me
And a daughter

But being the man he was
With pride and good will
He gave himself up
To the stars and stripes

I remember him saying
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
And he would look away
And I’d be crying

He gave me his word that he would be back
He wanted to be a firefighter after the war
But god had other plans
And a notice came to my door


He had loyalty
He had honor
To the wife
And to the daughter

He said before he was shot
To give this to you
It’s not much
But it will do

He loves you both
And wants you to remember him
So with that
I give you this

And inside the package that came with the letter
Was a plaque that read
This man was loyal
This man was honor
