I didn't do nothing. :P

My father has left me
He’s gone off to war
He’ll come back one day
He promised me so

My mother is worried
About her husband, Marine
He is gone of fighting
For a Victory

One thing she forbid him
And that was to die
He said that he wouldn’t
He’d come home alright

However my father
Couldn’t listen to rules
And as he broke this one
My mother died too

She continued to love us
Her children, just two
Yet, we saw that she missed him
Her heart broken in two

As we grew up
One mother, No dad
I learned that he fought hard
And never gave up

My mother she struggled
Without the husband she loved
Yet, as she stayed strong
It shaped who I was

My best friend is dating a Marine and I was wondering what would happen if he went off to war.
