Call of Duty

Yesterday was the day I chose to join my brothers
Across the oceans, away from all our lovers
We fight for those who can't fight for themselves
We fight for those who chose not to fight as well
It's a hard choice to make, one has to be selfless
To leave their lives behind, might seem a bit reckless
Someone has to do it, why not me
Someone has to protect you, to keep you free
Wish me luck, keep me in your prayers
I'll be back before you know it, to your sweet tender loving care
However if I don't return, and my body is sent back in a box
Always remember you were in my thoughts
Sometimes life can be cruel and unfair
Please go on with your life and don't get caught in despair
