The Little Sailor Poem And Lyrics is just changing soldier to sailor.

Dedicated to those dads that never came home. This is not about my dad, who came home, but others who did not.

I would love to work with someone, who will help put this to music. I think it could be a song, am I wrong?



 The Little Soldier Poem And Lyrics

 

I remember dad’s tears in my mom’s eyes

When he was ordered to serve overseas

That my father looked right into my eyes

“You are the man of the house for awhile.”

 

The years have past and the tears have since dried

After officers in dress uniforms

Did notify my mom of dad’s passing

That today a soldier serves their country

 

I remember the child

That saluted that day

On a flag draped coffin

When (my) dad was put to rest

 

I remember dad’s tears in my mom’s eyes

When he was ordered to serve overseas

That my father looked into my eyes

“You are the man of the house for now.”

 

I remember the child

That saluted that day

When my dad was put to rest

In his uniform saluting America

 

The tears flow inside pride for one’s country

That finds another dad with a wife’s tears

When I was ordered to serve overseas

A son that must step up to be a man

 

I remember the child

That saluted that day

When my dad was put to rest

In his uniform saluting America

 

I remember the child

That saluted that day

Please God, help this dad

Come home

And hug his son again.
