In Love with a Soldier
Loving a soldier is a high price to pay
loving him truly is hard when he's away.
It's being alone with nothing to hold;
It's being young, but feeling old;
it's having him whisper his love for you;
it's whispering back that you love him too.
There comes a kiss and a promise for more,
as his plane slowly rises to soar;
reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,
while your insides are dying from wanting him so,
watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
standing alone with your hopes, dreams and fears.
It's sending a letter with the stamp upside down,
to a far away love in a far away town.
It's going to church to kneel and pray,
and really meaning the things you say.
Being in love will foster your dreams,
of that far away soldier your mind fairly beams.
Days go by no mail for a spell, you wait for the word
to hear that he's well. Then a letter arrives and you've given in
to open his letter and read it with a grin, yes, he is well and misses
you so, it's filled with the love you wanted to know. Weeks are like
months and months are like years, you'll wait for the day you
have no more fears. Days go by slowly, how many have passed?
Yes, loving a soldier brings bitterness and fears, loneliness, sadness
and despondent years. Loving a soldier isn't much fun, but its worth
the price when the battle is won; and remember he is thinking of you
everyday, he's sad and he's lonely while so far away;
so love him and miss him and hold your head high,
be strong have faith, wipe that tear from your eye.
It's the high price you pay for loving a soldier.
