He came to his decision
the morning of his departure
his parents didn't approve, for it was against their religion
Determined, he looked past their disapproval
It took courage to leave behind his life
Letting go of his wife was the hardest removal
Still treasuring his love, he went off to war
Knowing he wouldn't see his family no more
He was a marine for the U.S. naval
With a gun shot wound, he was no longer stable
Back at home his wife was told
Already she had two children, both four years old
Later that day she got more news,
her husband had deceased
Wondering why God hadn't sent her clues
If she had known, she would of never let him go to war to be released
Now she lives on in grief,
and looks to an empty bed side before she lays to sleep
She dreams of him and her still together,
Living a normal life with their children forever
Waking up to reality,
She could no longer associate herself with war profanity
Every anniversary of her husbands death,
Leaves a scar beneath her chest
There lies her heart that beats for her lost husband
Flashing back to the phone call that kept her face sudden
