War Tears Familys Apart

My dad has been sent to go to war
I haven’t stoped crying since he closed the door
Every night I pray for him to come back
Every night I hope he just running down a track
Not being sent to the front line to fight
Not having to face the enemy in a fistfight
Not being rushed into intensive care
Not having to hear that dreadful news and to despair
Not seeing a coffin with him laying inside
Not having to look at it wide-eyed
Not having to come home without him
Not having to sit here until the lights are dim
All I want is my dad to come home
I don’t want mum and me to be alone
