You're a note sent from heaven,
To this battle field in hell.
I wish I could kiss you here
and the worries farewell.
Every letter written carefully
By a steady hand in ink.
I hold your picture to my heart,
You are my missing link.
I'm hopelessly lost in this never ending war
There's guns and fighting all around;
I promised you I'd come home
And to that promise I am bound.
Should my heart stop beating
Because a bullet is through my chest,
I'll be home at some point,
Please lay me down to rest.
