Being away
Not knoiwing what to do
I feel lonely
Lost without you

Keeping that head up high
Crying a tear or two
Having to get through this day
Not missing you

Trodding along
this lonely road
I stumble and fall
But needing to get up again

To you I look
But I can't see your eyes
The lonliness I feel
How scared it is to be

"Chin up!--straight ahead
the war is over
Stop feeling sad!"

But how can this be
When you are still so far away from me
Not until you are home
Will all of us be glad
