From The Words of a Soldier...
By Sarah Lynn Herzog

From the words of the soldier, I heard him telling me,
I wont be around for a while, ill be gone over seas.
From the words of a soldier, the ones I never wanted to hear,
took the only single breathe in me, as I hold in my tears.
From the words of a soldier, I cant believe this is happening,
are you leaving for sure, is it you they’re really sending?
From the words of a soldier, as they came flowing to my ears,
Finally realizing, he would be gone weeks, months, even years.
From the words of a soldier, they told me not to cry,
They told me to be strong and be faithful, and that time would go by.
From the words of a soldier, expressing his love for me,
Making me his promises, promising he’ll keep.
From the words of the soldier, how did it ever come to this,
The expressions of the good byes, and the everlasting kiss.
From the words of a soldier, they come only from letters,
How can this be so hard, will it ever get any better?
From the words of a soldier, where  have they all gone?
but the radio still haunts me, with our favorite song..
From the words of the soldier, I need them calling my name,
I need them to serenade me, I need to be sane.
From the words of a soldier, there hasn’t been for months,
I never even wanted this war, and its been going on  long enough.
From the words of a soldier, they haunt me in my sleep,
They  need to be real, I need you next to me.
From the words of a soldier, and its them I day dream of,
Its been almost two years now, should I even give up.
From the words of soldier, I remember as he told me,
Be strong and be faithful, when I serve over seas.
From the words of a soldier, and  they become my memory,
and I will keep on waiting, for a month, a year, even eternity.
