A Soldier's Wife

A Soldier's Wife
 
My name's often forgotten 
But that doesn't bother me
He is the one who matters
And every time he leaves
Part of me is torn away
My heart just breaks in two
Oh Lord I need your strength now
Before I come unglued
 
I hurry off with our boys
Their daddy's gone away
I know the questions will start soon
How will I make it through this day?
Everyone talks about the soldiers
Give them the respect they're do
But what about my sons and me?
Don't we matter too?
 
My husband is a soldier
And I'm that soldier's wife
Please notice all your freedoms
We make that sacrifice
And if he gives his life for you
I know that I'll stand tall
He's fighting for our country
And for that he'll take the fall
 
So when you bow your head at night
And say your bedtime prayer
Please remember to pray for our troops
Who are scattered everywhere
And if you happen to remember
Please say a prayer for me
I am the one who's left behind
Your prayers are what I need.
 
I am a soldier's wife.
