Don't Go Daddy.... sad but beautiful
Don't go Daddy Don't go back to war You've missed my last two birthdays Don't miss any more. Write to me please Daddy Write to me every day Mummy reads your letters to me Before I go to play. I got your letter Daddy And your photo in a frame I kiss you when I go to bed But it's just not quite the same. I put my hands together And pray you'll come home soon Then snuggle up inside my bed Staring at the moon. A soldier came to the house today He had a bible by his side He said bad things to Mummy Because she fell to her knees and cried. "What did you say to Mummy, That made her start to cry" "If I was any bigger, I'd punch you in the eye" " Don't be angry baby, He's got a job to do" "But when he's gone, I'll have to share some very sad news with you". Daddy won't be coming home The Angels took him away So, when you want to speak to him Put your hands together and pray. Why did Mummy say those things I just don't understand I want you to come home now Daddy I want to hold your hand How can I make Mummy better I don't know what to do All day she sits there crying Holding a picture of you. I stay inside the house much more I don't go out to play Because when people ask me where you are I don't know what to say. Things are very different now It's not the same as before I'm now the oldest man in the house And I am only four. One day I'll make you proud Daddy At least I'll try my best One day each year I'll march Daddy With your medals on my chest. unknown

So sad and oh so true :cry: When you are standing for the 2 minute silence tomorrow, spare a thought for the families who have lost loved ones in recent conflicts like Iran and Afghanistan. :hug: :hug:

Thanks to everyone who comments on my projects. I am very grateful even if I don't always get around to thanking you personally! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all!
