"A Letter From A Soldier".....

I fight for you everyday
For your safety and freedom far, far away
Everyday I fear that it may be my last
Looking at what was important to me in the past

I choose this life, to fight
For your freedom, your eternal right
It gets lonely out in this far distant land
I have nothing but my gun and boots full of sand

I pray to Jesus each and every night
That he may shield me from this next fight
I live each day with fear of death
I never know when it will be my last breath

"Lets Move Out" says my sergeant
Always worried about what will happen
I get my gear and my gun
I ask myself "How much more, before this is done?"

Bullets and RPG's zooming past my head
I cant help but fear soon I will be dead
Each and every second of life i cherish
Because I never know when I will perish

A sound of gun shots all around
Bodies of young soldiers is all to be found
Bombs shattering the buildings apart
Mirror the pieces that are also my heart

Every dying soldier causes me to tremble
All the soldiers will start to assemble
The greatest gift I can give
Is to lay down my life so someone else may live

All those young men who did not come home
Also left their family and children all alone
I'm here safe and sound
Now with my family on my own ground

I pray for my fellow soldiers everyday
I ask the lord to reward them for what they had to pay
Show mercy to all those who fell
"lord, they have served their time in hell"

I write this letter to you and to all
To tell you about myself and those who answered the call
Together we will get it done, because Britain we are
An army of one.....

"My Lonely Christmas"
(Army Wives lonely Christmas)

As I lay down to sleep, this eve of Christmas morn, '
I slide between the cotton sheets so comfortable and warm.

A tinge of guilt comes over me followed by a saddened tear.
I say another lonely prayer that only God can hear.

I turn the bedside light off and quickly settle in,
but it will be a few more hours before my night comes to an end.

I lie here all but motionless, eyes wider than the sky.
I try to think of happy thoughts, but I still break down and cry.

I punch my flattened pillow and lie flat on my back.
I'm thinking of my soldier who's bravely serving in Iraq.

I finally stop my crying and a calm sets in my heart.
For, I know this year will quickly pass, then we'll no longer be apart.

My eyes are feeling heavy now, so I send God one last prayer.
"God, please protect my soldier while fighting over there!"

A Mother`s Heart.....

My mind can know
But my heart doesn’t understand
My beloved sweet boy
Becoming an angry young man
The Army life Is unknown to me
I try to understand
But you say “let me be!”
My heart will ache
With each passing day
That I don’t hear
From you, far away.
Mistakes of the past
I wish you’d forgive
At least just agree
To live and let live
Like treading on pins
So afraid am I
To leave on bad terms
God forbid, you should die
I’m always your mom
And always will be
Maybe someday
The truth you will see
So I swallow my pride
And try to go on
and wait for you to say“ I’m sorry,

The Life of a Soldier.....

I joined the army and I don't know why,
surely some day I must die,
fighting for the peace and here is my final good-bye,
I am strong but at times I feel I must cry.

I have no reason to live,
but for others' lives I know I must give,
for everything I've done I hope you can forgive,
all the pain inside me I know I must relive.

people think war is like hell,
but they haven't been in it so I guess they'll never tell,
people all around me dying,
I know for some reason life is worth trying.

I know my family loves me, I love them too,
sometimes I miss them so much I don't know what to do,
I don't what I got myself into,
so to all my family and everything you've done for me,
from the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Britain will never know the reason why we're fighting,
but please know I left my little girl so others could be free,
I know you disagree but I promise I'm not doing this just for me,
I'm doing it for my country, my country tis' of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I see. We must stay free..


Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan this morning...RIP.....

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.....

The Soldiers Dream
(written by bravolima) 3rd May 2008

Every soldier has a dream
Whilst going off to war
He dreams of coming home
And what he`s fighting for

The promise he made to his mother
Whispered in a farewell embrace
Or the tears he wipes away
From his little sisters face

He shakes the hand of his father
Then hugs him ever so tight
He's holding back the tears
With all of his might

His wife kisses him so tenderly
While his son is at his knee
He scoops him up into his arms
The tears flow for all to see

His little boy wipes his tears
And say`s “Daddy don't cry”
I will look after mum for you
If you were to die

He puts his son down
And turns to walk away
Dreaming, that he will
Make it home one day



Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan yesterday afternoon...RIP...
My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time......

Don't Grieve For Me.............

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free;
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan this morning...RIP.....

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.....

Repatriation

The leviathan of the sky does land
In England's green and pleasant land.
Its cargo more precious than gold
The body of a hero, bold.

Once the giant's engines stopped
The cargo ramp is gently dropped
Carried by six on shoulders true
The hero is saluted by the crew.

The coffin draped in Union Jack
Is slowly carried out the back.
Out of the dark and into light
Slowly down the ramp and to the right.


The six approach the hearse all black
And place the hero gently in the back.
The six then turn and march away
Their duty has been done this day.

The hearse with its precious load
Moves slowly out onto the road.
The floral tributes line the route
While comrades snap a smart salute.

At the edge of a Wiltshire town
The cortege slows its pace right down.
The streets are packed, many deep,
Some throw flowers, most just weep.

The crowd have come to say farewell,
The church bell rings a low death knell.
Regimental standards are lowered down
As the hero passed through the town.

Politicians usually have much to say
No sign of them near here this day.
They hide away and out of danger,
Much easier if the hero is a stranger.

The cortege stops and silence reigns
The townsfolk feel the family's pain.
The nations' flag lowered to half mast
Our brave hero is home at last.

Sunset Vigil

The news is spread far and wide
Another comrade has sadly died
A sunset vigil upon the sand
As a soldier leaves this foreign land

We stand alone, and yet as one
In the fading light of a setting sun
We've all gathered to say goodbye
To our fallen comrade who's set to fly

The eulogy's read about their life
Sometimes with words from pals or wife
We all know when the CO's done
What kind of soldier they'd become

The padre then calls us all to pray
The bugler has Last Post to play
The cannon roars and belches flame
We will recall, with pride, their name

A minute's silence stood in place
As tears roll down the hardest face
Deafening silence fills the air
With each of us in personal prayer

Reveille sounds and the parade is done
The hero remembered, forgotten by none
They leave to start the journey back
In a coffin draped in the Union Jack

Two Little Boys….

Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summer's day
Warriors both of course
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horse's head
Wept for his toy then cried with joy
As his young playmate said
Did you think I would leave you crying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Jack and don't be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we'll both be soldiers
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we were two little boys
Long years had passed, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud, and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dying lay
Up goes a shout, a horse dashes out
Out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay
Then came a voice he knew
Did you think I would leave you dying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two
Did you say Joe I'm all a-tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys
Do you think I would leave you dying
There's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon by flying
Back to the ranks so blue
Can you feel Joe I'm all a tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys


This song by Rolf Harris inspired me to write my poem Friends are Forever…..

Friends Are Forever.........
(written by bravolima) 10th January 2009

My mind is wandering back
To when we were boys
All through our childhood
We shared our toys

We grew up together
Never were we apart
We were like twins
Sharing the same heart

When we left school
We shared the same job
We enlisted in the army
We joined the same mob

We trained side by side
We went through the pain
We grew from boys to men
We would never be the same

Then off to Northern Ireland
Like the three tours before
To protect the vulnerable people
From this mindless civil war

Patrolling the streets of Belfast
Or the countryside of Armagh
We were protecting each other
Never ever straying too far

I still remember that morning
It`s implanted in my mind
How did I miss that wire
Why, oh why was I blind

Now after all these years
Each one comes and goes
Never will I forget you
As on your grave I place a rose



This poem I wrote in memory of my best mate who was sadly killed in Northern Ireland in the 70s.....RIP mate... you are forever in my heart....

SENT......

He the soldier standing strong
She the wind that wraps
Laying down his empty arms
His energy she saps

One tear on the battle field
One tear from glass eyes
One tear acts as battle shield
One tear soldier cries

She the moment as knees did bend
She the strength and power
Sent to lift him from the field
Sent for him this hour

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan today.....RIP...

The Soldier and God........

The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass

Step forward you Soldier
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my Church have you been true?

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
No, Lord, I guess I ain`t
Because those of us that carry guns
Can`t always be a saint

I`ve had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough
And sometimes I`ve been violent
Because the world is awfully rough
But, I never took a penny
That wasn`t mine to keep
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep

And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear
And sometimes, God forgive me
I`ve wept unmanly tears

I know I don`t deserve a place
Among the people here
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears

If you`ve a place for me here
Lord, It needn`t be so grand
I never expected or had too much
But if you don`t, I`ll understand

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly
For the judgment of his God

Step forward now, you Soldier
You`ve borne your burden well
Walk peacefully on Heaven`s streets
You`ve done your time in Hell

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan yesterday...RIP.....

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.....

High Street of Tears......

A small town a large street,
Wootton Bassett So pretty so neat
Floods of tears for the heroes they weep
The flags are draped, the heroes beneath,

Wootton Bassett the one way street.

We watch for the plane with fear and dread
As we know the cargo, our heroes, our dead,
They send them away to fight for freedom
For honour, for democracy but no food to feed them.

Wootton Bassett our town of the dead.

No money no armour no choppers they said
Just do your best with your gun and your lead,
Make us proud our minister's babble
We need the money for expenses and travel

Wootton Bassett our town of the dead.

The people scream, give them their needs
Our men are dying on knees they plead
Hear our prayers hear our fears
On Wootton Bassett's high street of tears

We meet their needs state the men at the top
The toll is acceptable so that's their lot
What compensation, why the greed,
We've spent the budget they have what they need.
So stop the whining and squash your fears
And stand in Wootton Bassett on the high street of tears.

Dedicated to the Armed Forces.........

A Nation lives forever – indebted to your lives
You gave away your spirits, left behind your wives.

When one fell down, another would stand
To die for his country in a foreign land.

Together they fought ‘till the enemy lost
Fought for our freedom, whatever the cost.

I can come and go whenever, wander where I please -
Because of you a nation lives and breathes in ease.

Thank you for my life and freedom, my ability to roam
Because of you I can be proud to call this nation home

Personal note…….

I feel the deepest sympathy for those parents, relations and friends of soldiers and victims killed and injured in war, in all their grief and pain. This year has seen calamitous and totally avoidable suffering in Afghanistan.

When young people sign up to serve in the armed forces of their country they do so in the belief that if the worst came to the worst they might be called upon to defend their country against an enemy invader. To find that they are called upon to attack another country is a abuse of their talents and courage.

I would hope that the loss of all the innocent lives would help in some way to make a better world, but I hold the conviction that attempting to "help" a country by first killing thousands of innocent people is an outrage, totally immoral, and illegal under international law. I believe leaders who initiate such crimes should be held personally responsible and tried as war criminals.

This to my mind is the essence of what is wrong with war. It causes such immense suffering which will take years if not generations to heal.

They are the ones responsible for the deaths of the innocent and defenceless people of Afghanistan who never planned to do us the slightest harm, and the deaths of our own innocent servicemen.

Several parents of soldiers killed in the Afghanistan war have contacted the British press to say how they felt that their sons died in a bad cause or were betrayed by the British government. Clearly, I agree with them. The Afghans have never threatened Britain.

A Soul in Glory.....

When I am gone, remember I'm with Jesus,
then do not mourn because I've passed away.
Life holds so many griefs and disappointments,
And will you cry because I did not stay?
It is only for a spell we must be parted;
Not many years on earth to us are given,
And when the Saviour tells me you are coming,
I'll go with him to welcome you to heaven.
Grieve not because the eyes that looked upon you
shall never see your face on earth again.
Rejoice, because they look upon the Saviour
Who gave his life to ransom sinful man
Weep not because I walk no longer with you
Remember, I am walking streets of gold
Weep for yourselves that you awhile may tarry
Before the blessed Lord you must behold.

Dedicated to the two brave soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan today...RIP...

If you can, save a place within your heart for the tired souls of war and conflict and as you walk away take one last backward glance at the places they can no longer go.
Remember what they have taught you and take their knowledge and wisdom with you so their deaths were not in vain. One day when we all look back and realize what they sacrificed, take a moment to embrace in your heart all those gentle heroes that were left behind on the battlefields fighting for their country. Let them know that you have always loved them even though you may not have.
Forever save a place in your hearts for them.

"My Lonely Christmas" (Army Wives lonely Christmas)

As I lay down to sleep, this eve of Christmas morn, '
I slide between the cotton sheets so comfortable and warm.

A tinge of guilt comes over me followed by a saddened tear.

I'm thinking of my soldier who's bravely serving in Iraq.

I finally stop my crying and a calm sets in my heart.
For, I know this year will quickly pass, then we'll no longer be apart.

My eyes are feeling heavy now, so I send God one last prayer.

A Poem for Army Wives/Girlfriends



 Everyone hears of the Army Wife,
Her trials, sacrifices, and devoted life.
She is strong, she is brave, and she is loving indeed,
Standing by her man in his time of need.

But what of others in a similar situation,
Who have made being an Army girlfriend their main occupation?
They suffer many of the same trials and many of the same fears
Without the security of future years.

Will there be peace or will there be war?
You try to be hopeful but it's hard to ignore.
The world seems to be falling apart
When to a soldier you have given your heart.

Your love runs too deep to escape from it now.
You hope to be together somewhere, somehow,
When his duty is over and your life can begin.
You wonder if it will happen but don't question when.

The many heartbreaks and times you did weep
When he made promises the Army couldn't keep.
But you have learned so much together and come so far.
Others warned you not to fall in love but you already are.

His job is ever-changing and takes him far away.
You think of him always and pray every day--
For his safety, his courage, and his love for you
That he may remain steadfast, loyal, and ever true.

Nothing is sure and nothing is set in stone...
Except that he will leave again and you will be alone,
Holding tightly to your dreams of a future together
When you will at last be able to say the word "forever."

Tears have become anything but a stranger.
They fall freely in sadness, loneliness, and anger.
But he will never know because you will never tell.
You've learned to hide your misery only too well.

A few years? That doesn't sound like so long.
The letters and phone calls keep your love going strong,
Even when they are few and far between,
In them, his love for you can clearly be seen.

So keep your chin up and a smile on your face.
He is protecting your freedom and keeping you safe.
His heart is strong and his love is true
And don't ever forget that he is missing you too.

A Soldier's Wife...

I hate to watch
Each time you leave
And I hide from you
How much I grieve

I know it’s your duty
And you will go
But once you are gone
I will miss you so

I know you’ll come home
As soon as you can
But right now you’ll deploy
Like an honourable man

So I’ll keep things together
Till you can come back
But, this is where you belong
Not some desert in Iraq

Yet, I do understand
Why you risk you’re life
For that’s a Soldier’s job
And I’m a Soldier’s wife.

Fallen......

Rest now my fallen brother
Lay soft your suffering back
Rest well and forever
Your memory shall not lack
Rest your tired hands
Wipe clean your weary brow
Rest with St. Peter
Your spirit now endowed
Rest here your breaking heart
We know you gave your all
Rest easy, you’ve done your part
You’ve answered your last call
Rest knowing that in god we sought
Oh lord, watch over another who just fell
Rest assured your troubled thought
As we ring the final bell

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan yesterday...RIP...

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.....

A Soul in Glory.....

When I am gone, remember I'm with Jesus,
then do not mourn because I've passed away.
Life holds so many griefs and disappointments,
And will you cry because I did not stay?
It is only for a spell we must be parted;
Not many years on earth to us are given,
And when the Saviour tells me you are coming,
I'll go with him to welcome you to heaven.
Grieve not because the eyes that looked upon you
shall never see your face on earth again.
Rejoice, because they look upon the Saviour
Who gave his life to ransom sinful man
Weep not because I walk no longer with you
Remember, I am walking streets of gold
Weep for yourselves that you awhile may tarry
Before the blessed Lord you must behold.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan yesterday...RIP...
