My soldier, my lover, my hero and best friend.
I watch the night terrors haunt you to no end.
You kick and scream, you don't know that it's me.
I suffer with you, as you have these dreams.
You fought for my freedom, yet you are prisoner to what you've seen.
The damage is done, now your body is unclean.
Exposed to poisons, so that I can walk free.
My soldier, I thank you, you have helped me see.
When the bomb went off, you only lost your eye.
I am so thankful that it was not your time to die.
Where would I be without you by my side?
My soldier, you are safe now, let go of your pride.
You have lost several brothers to suicide.
Trained to be the best, but the pain you cannot hide.
Take my hand as we face life together.
My soldier, with you, I can withstand any weather.
Let me fight for you this time.
I will never let harm come near you and I
