A Soldier’s Heart
I am just a lonely solider
Far away from home-
Roaming through the country, feeling all alone.
Will the sounds of shooting ever end?
Will my battle wounds ever mend?
Will I ever see my family, all together, all as one?
Will I ever get over the sights I saw at Bull Run?
My friends tell me the war is surely almost over;
And in my heart, I feel it must be a lie.
For I know the world has come to an end,
And soon.so will I.
