She Visits His Stone

She Visits His Stone

There she kneeling
By a stone so cold
Knowing good and well
She'll not have him to hold

Just because of a mine
He was a U.S. Marine
He didn't have a chance
He didn't even scream

Now she visits his stone
Wishing he could return
Every night she cries
As her heart yearns

She had big plans for them
Now,her dreams can't come true
For he served his country
And died for me and you

Some act like they don't care
As long as they do as they like
But don't think of the sacrifices
Others make for them and their life

If only they could see the truth
The press covers up so well
If they could read-between the line
The would see the real Hell

No one knows the troubles
Or the pains one goes through
When they lose thier loved ones
Fighting wars for freedom for me and you

So she visits his stone
Every chance she gets
Placing pretty flowers
For just one of many vets

Someday she may move on
If the right one comes along
But,first her heart must heal
He may have to help her be strong

So salute our Soldiers
No matter who they might be
Because by the grace of God
That Soldier could be you or me
