in honor of all those
who have died in all
wars....

i was browsing
facebook and seeing
all the posts about the
holiday that people
shared on this
memorial day 2013...

and inspired by
something, i wrote this
song in a matter of
however long it took
me to write it down...

we owe a lot to those
who have served and
made the ultimate
sacrifice..

an i look forward to the
day we no longer have
to fight to see who is
"right...
when a soldier dies

they come from all walks of life...
and we send them off to war...
they give their lives in service
and we reap the rewards..
they are gone but not forgotten
and we honor them today
we will always love and miss them
in a very special way
but time should stop for a moment
and the whole world should cry
when a soldier dies

they leave behind their families
and the friends that they have made
mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers
we have lost along the way
husbands, wives, sons and daughters
we miss them every day
is it really worth it all
this price we have to pay
but time should stop for a moment
and the whole world should cry
when a soldier dies

they say war is good for nothing
and i couldn't agree more
why must we fight these battles
just to even up the score

i hope some day that we will end
the hell we've had to pay
for sending people off to die
so we can lives our lives this way
and i have faith and trust someday
that we will finally see
the peace and love and happiness
that is our destiny
and there won't be those moments
and the world won't have to cry
when a soldier dies
