Standing Watch

A soldiers words that went cold
told of a story a million years old
standing out on the front line
to make sure they pay for their crime
torn between what is wrong and what is right
as he fights night after night
he swore himself to do whatever his country might need
and he did just that with every action and every deed
standing above all the rest
thanking god he passed the test
he lived long and proud
as he stood among the crowd
holding his family close and tight
to reasure them that it is alright
strong and sure he stands his watch.
