A Soldier’s Eyes

A Soldier’s eyes never stop seeing,
The miles behind him,
The miles yet to come,
The milestones he’s never celebrated,

A Soldier’s eyes never stops seeing,
The tears from their mothers,
The backs of their fathers,
The countryman they forgot,

A Soldier’s eyes never stops seeing,
The straining scowl of his brow,
The fading glint in his eye,
The final twitch of his blood caked eyelids,

A Soldier’s eyes never stops seeing,
The glorious flight home,
The kids first hug,
The love that walked out the door,

A Soldier’s eyes never stops seeing,
The choices he made,
The lives affected,
The nightmares left in its wake,
