A Poem by Alex Vandool

Well now it's time to go

Let me kiss your tears away

Don't fret, baby

You know I've been through this before

It will be a piece of cake

We're brothers in that line there

Not one will break the thin red steel

We fight for nation and for freedom

If we don't go - this world will end

But we will go and live on dreams there

You're in our hearts, and nights, and soul

You keep us warm when chill starts teasing

You drive us on when weary boots drag down

Your voice is in our ears in every blessed moment

As heroes fall for all that's truly good

We don't hate the enemy

We know they fight for something

But only the God of Love is true

The love we share is what rewards us

A great life and beautiful world for our little girl and boy

Let the cowards trash and damn us

Their ignorance and blank minds only ever made us laugh

We know the cause for which we're fighting

The same eternal cause that gives speed of wing to angels

Whose wish reflects

...in your wondrous eyes
