Soldier Coming Home (A Song)

Poem By Bill Simmons

As the dawn begins to break, I see headlights
The farm is just a ways down the road
I wonder if she knows, I'm coming
And I wonder , if she is there alone

It's been a year since the war called me
I went away to do what I had to do
It's been a year since I held her in my arms
It's been a year, shes had time to choose

I've seen many soldiers get the letter
Letters from someone that said goodbye
And each time the mail when it would come
I would brace myself and worry if I got mine

Now it's been a year and I'm coming home
But time can change ones mind sometimes
And if shes waiting like she said she would
Then today will be the day I make her mine

I kept every letter that she wrote
In battle I kept them close to my heart
She has always been the world to me
I couldn't imagine my life with out my sweet heart

As I pull into the drive I can see
Someone has raised a flag with one lone star
And I can see a banner just beneath
And I read as I pull up in the car

' The love of my life '
' Is fighting for your Life '
' Dear God '
' Please let him come back home to me '.

This thing that they call love
That so many are in search of

Only the lonely dream of

He climbs up on his tracter
Starts up his henry ford
Mows some in his pasture
For a while til he gets bored

Unconditional Love

Your puppy licked my hand today
He doesn't know that you are gone
I reached down, he came to me
He ran right into my arms
