The Lost Of A Soldier




My father was a soldier



He fought within a war



My mother told me



When I was only four







I saw the tears in my motherís eyes



I saw the pain upon her face



She told me he served his country



In a God forsaken place







All we have left are memories



Of all the good times gone by



When I look at my fatherís medals



It brings a tear into my eye







I watched my motherís pain



And the courage to carry on



I was among thousands



Who lost a father on the SOMME?
