Soldier I will never forget you ..........for Dad

Lay down my soldier and rest
I have seen it
you have done your very best

I 'll shake your hand and you will know
that which I appreciate
that which I will show

Lay down my soldier I know it'll never heal
I will wipe down those wounds
that us free may never feel

Smile for me in your own time
that I might know your heart
I will ease your mind

Lay down my soldier and I will stand watch
you've done your duty
my care can never match

Never forgotten not one of your tears
we will spend them together
remembering through the years
