"Through a Child's Eyes"
As a mother fights to hold back her tears
A child fights his biggest fears
One last smile, hug and a kiss,
Sad that this is what they'll miss
As daddy climbs aboard the bus,
I cry and cry as he waves good bye to us.
The buses leave, to the airport they go
For how long, we never will know
Hes going overseas to fight
So you and I can sleep safe at night.
Mommy daddy brother and me
are still the family we used to be
Even though were missing one
doesn't mean we cant have fun
Daddy said I should not be sad
That I should be happy and support my dad
Care packages, photos, and letters galore,
daddy says keep sending more and more
Pull the rings off one by one
Counting the days until daddy's done
Sad and teary-eyed late one night
mommy says to smile at the stars so bright
Close your eyes and make a wish
pretend your with daddy catching fish
he may be really far away
but hes wishing on these same stars today
wishing he could hold you too
hoping one day soon that wish will come true,
Through a Child's Eyes
