Confessions of a soldier 2

I fight for my country
I fight for fame
I fight for freedom
for a brighter day

So tough i appear
my best friend does say
So strong i am
according to him
So rough i am
my friend reports
So scared i am, deep inside
None do know

My happiness not one
I believe to have
My friendships
to one true guy
The only one i see eye to eye
My love
nonexistent, all bone dry

I fight for my country
I fight for fame
I fight for freedom
for a brighter day

I do no fear
much i say
Yet mistake my words
I do a lot

Many a blunder i made in life
To come was one i do not fear to say
Another, tragic
cost a life

A life i never thought to fade
A life i would be willing to completely trade
A life of my one true friend

I fight for my country
I fight for fame
I fight for freedom
for a brighter day

I wrote a letter
One that no one should write
A letter to my Best Friends wife
A letter i would never forget

I joined the army
in truth, for fun
I may leave in a coffin or worse
The thought of death looms over me like a cloud

I did many things wrong in life
Yet there is still time
Time to put things right

I fight for my country
I fight for fame
I fight for freedom
for a brighter day

My wife, i write
to you now
I fear, with my last breath
I know i will not live long
So read my words
and keep them as you would gold

I only and truly loved one
I only and truthfully loved you till i was undone
True may it be our love gone
But i write to you now
with my last moments i fear

I was stupid and i know that
i was dumb
you have the right to say
i as crazy
be that some of many

Sorry for everything
i am
Sorry I bailed
as i did
the quick mans way out
some may say

I apologize with my whole heart
And so i write to remove all pangs
For fear for you i do
Every morning, fear
Night too

I guess what i want to say is
If short and straight you want
I know i love you
And believe
We still might have a chance....

To you young soldier i award thee
A medal and honors of bravery
Yet grieve you must
and thus shall
Your wife
Killed in an air raid

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
