Soldier Boy

by sweetwoodjax

Oh soldier boy all dressed in blue
A love for country in you grew.
Your eyes were turned toward the sea
While you fought to keep us free.

Oh soldier boy all dressed in green
I wonder at the things you've seen.
The hidden enemies that you fight
Keeps us from sharing in your plight.

Oh soldier boy all dressed in brown
You keep a vigil upon the ground.
As you trudge through grains of sand
You keep us safe upon our land.

Oh soldier boy in blue and red
You do the things that others dread.
All other forces on you they call
Cause you were trained to give your all.

Oh soldier boy with silver wings
You conquer the air and other things.
Up in the air you plainly see
The possible threats that may harm me.

Oh soldier boy all dressed in white
Just days ago you lost your fight.
A coffin draped in red, white and blue
Is not the home God has for you.

He called you home beyond the sun
To honor all the things you've done.
I can see you now at Heaven's door
Talking with the One that you adore.

Stand guard in Heaven and wait for me.
Thanks for being all you could be.
A soldier for the army of God
That also protected the land that we trod.


Army-Green for jungle and brown for desert
Airforce-Blue with silver wings
Marines-Navy Blue with Red
Dress whites used for military funerals

Thanks to armed forces for all that you do and the families that support them in their field.
