Soon We Will Sail Away

Soon We Will Sail Away

A Poem by MusicLove93

Soon we'll sail among the heavens
And soar above the clouds.
But first, we must stay here in the war-zone
And listen as the bugle sounds..
As your heart pounds.
Pounding to the beat of the drum.
So consistent, tis almost a comforting hum.
For if the little drummer boy is to fall,
Defeat is surely soon to call.

  Oh but soon we will sail away.
Soon we may see a better day.
So don't give up yet young soldier,
This war is not long till over.
Keep trudging through your trenches.
Keep on marching through the rain.
Don't give in to the pain.

  Though you take every blow to your pride
With a smile on your face,
It's ok to cry, you don't have to hide
The hurt and the fear
Of things so far, yet still so near.
Oh but in time e'rything will be alright.
One day soon you won't have to fight..

Featured Review

This poem shows the depth of the
writer as nothing else can.
The poem is sentimental without
being tearful. It is thick with good
feeling toward all mankind.
I love the poem because it shares a
kindred spirit, a generous attitude toward
our service men and our country.

Great writing.
Love it .

A truly beautiful piece. It does honour and justice to men who stand because they have no alternative. Awash with sentiment and feeling, it is not a sentimental piece. It shows both love and respect. An honourable and profound work. Thank you for posting it.

"Though you take every blow to your pride
With a smile on your face,
It's ok to cry, you don't have to hide
The hurt and the fear"

Giving oneself permission to be human, to be vulnerable, brings the greatest freedom.

Believe it or not, soldiers do not fight for a cause, a reason or to protect their country; they die, lose their minds, for each other, and the one hope that lives inside them like a fire and never burns out: the prospect of coming home. War is fight to come home, and you did such a great job of illustrating that here with your amazing words and prose.
