NOAH---BABY TO SOLDIER


She fed you patiently
At her breast
The first six months
Of your life
Now you're 27
With a mother that's your wife

Go to war, my son
As you see fit
And remember mother's love
From breast to beyond the grave
Will never quit

As a baby or a man
A mother's love will stand
In strength as you go to war
Soldiers are strong
And mother's love of her man son
Is stronger more

My son Noah becomes a soldier today
I often do not understand the manly way
What a sad place the world would be
Without sons or men to think of lovingly.
