In the silence of the night
a women gets the call
It appears that her husband
wont come back this fall
without a word
she hangs up the phone
she has to stay strong
she can't leave her kids alone
still she cries
from her eyes and her heart
she doesn't know what to do
her whole life is falling apart
but when she stops
she dries her tears
for a moment shes calm
then the moment disappears
worried and scared
she doesn't know what to do
now she feels sick
like she has the flu
but instead of giving in
she still puts up a fight
and somehow finds a way
to make it through the night
when morning comes
and the kids are awake
she tries to find the courage
not knowing how long this will take
you see her children
are but 3 and 5
and she doesn't know how to say
that "daddy" is no longer alive
she tells them of heaven
and how its a nice place to stay
and how "daddy's" there now
and how we all should pray
a week later shes still crying
and to be honest i would be to
if i had only known the horror
that she is going through
Her husband was a soldier
he fought for us to be free
and some of us are to blind
to even begin to see
Her husband was a soldier
he fought for us to be free
firemen, cops and "daddy's"
they're all hero's to me
Her husband was a soldier
he fought for US until his end
Pray for our hero's
because its US that they defend
