In a Soldier’s Mind

In the heat of the battle
With chaos all around
He seeks a moment of solitude
With just silence, no sound

He thinks of those back home
His friends and his family
And remembers the reason he's fighting
So they can all be free

He thinks of the girl
Who captured his heart
And longs for the day
When they're no longer apart

In his mind's eye he sees his unborn child
Running with arms wide open
He lifts her high into the sky
With a joy that is unspoken

He treasures these moments of silence
With his thought so sublime
That even in the chaos of battle
There is refuge in a soldier's mind
