Dedicated to all fallen soldiers.
It's Not My Time:
When you left you were just a young kid,
Wanting to fight.
You picked up your gun and they shipped you
Oversees to fight another mans war.
You had your whole life ahead of you,
Places to go and people to meet.
But you gave it all up
To do your duty.
You were loyal to your country
And even more to your friends
That you fought alongside
Every day and every night.
You weren't afraid,
Not the tiniest bit scared.
I am proud and ready
Is what you had said.
You wrote home
About the horrors you saw.
We cried while reading every letter
But we cried the hardest
When the last one came.
The one you'd given to your friend
To send home if you were ever to die.
But the words that hit us hardest
Were the last one's on the page
"If you're reading this I can tell you the last thing I know that
Will go through my head, and it's gonna be;
It's not my time."
You were right my friend,
It wasn't your time.
