Last Prayer Of A Dying Soldier

Out on the battle field
A soldier risks his own
So courageous yet full of fear
To rid the world of all wrong

Sweat drips from his brow
As enemy fire surrounds
He only thinks of his mission
As he hears the dying sounds

He prays under his breath
But means it from his heart
God please let me live
Long enough to do my part

As he then runs for cover
He feels a burning in chest
And prays, Oh, God I've been hit
Please let me make it to rest

As he approaches his destination
He falls to the sand
He looks up toward heaven
And see's Jesus with out reached hands

He looks over to a buddy
And says please relay my love
To my family back home
For I'm destined for peace above

So true and so sad. Very moving poem.
This is sad and moving, and happens far to often for my liking, apart from that a lovely poem.
