Family


Our brave men and women
Have said their good-byes,
Their families were waving
With teardrops in their eyes.

A mother quickly rushed home
And turned her TV on,
But it's only been an hour
That her youngest son has gone.

Stars

The men and women left behind
While their spouses go to war,
Try to explain to their children
What we're fighting for.

Every time a call comes in,
Whenever the door bell rings,
They shudder at the awful thought
Of what bad news war could bring.

Stars

You are the Silent Soldiers
Doing much more than your share;
And though we haven't seen you,
We know that you are there.

To all the children waiting
And to the families and friends,
We hope that very shortly
Your loved ones will be home again.

Stars

The sacrifices you will endure
Of facing each new day,
You too have our prayers and support,
Bless you and our USA.
