A Bitter Cold Winter in Afghanistan, A Symphony of Sun, Moon and Stars

A Bitter Cold Winter in Afghanistan, A Symphony of Sun, Moon and Stars

Away to War

The sliver of orange moon turns white
The closest star starts to fade
The sun will soon rise
On a new day

Most stars have faded from view
Except for the one
Closest to the moon
Its orange glow
Seemingly gone too soon

It rises closer to the star
Darkness turns to blue
On the horizon a
A pink and purple hue

It is with a sadness
The night ends
Another day closer to Afghanistan

For my son, a U.S. Marine
Deploying again, itís like a dream
I feel the sadness
Over me rush

Pounding in my heart
Where I stand,
Like the waves pound
Below on the sand
A dread exists when I think
Of the sand of Afghanistan

Before me rises another day
Putting him closer to going away
Gone for almost a year
Then heíll be back again

If Iím lucky Iíll see him
Come walking in
When he returns from a war far away
I pray for peace
That heís home to stay

The moon rises white against
My thoughts of sadness
When he returns Iíll be
full of gladness

The birds start to chirp
Itís another day
One day closer though,
To my son going away.
