Every morning he gets up, his PTs he puts on.
Sit-ups, push-ups, running, he’s an army of one.
He goes home, takes a shower and puts on his uniform,
ready to work and salute all day and all night long.
Till the call comes, pack up your shit it’s time for you to go.
Your stars and stripes are calling you, to fight your homeland’s foe.
So he packs up all that he needs, no questions he will ask,
’cause he’s a soldier proud and strong, just trying to do his best.
He sees the question and the tears in his families eyes,
but his little soldiers they are proud and silently pay the price.
Still they wonder every day, while he is gone away.
If he is safe, if he is sound and if he call this day.
Their love they send with every word they write down in a card,
that they do send down range to him, where he is working hard.
24 hours every day they think of him and pray,
for him to come back home to them and never go away!
The soldier who is far away from his kids and wife,
is fighting hard every day to safe another life.
It’s hot, it’s loud it’s dangerous and so goes by each day,
with mortar or sniper attacks they’re nothing new anyway.
All around he sees his fellow soldiers lie,
they’re shot at, they’re wounded and some of them may die.
In this land so different, where he was send to fight,
is there a chance he might come home, to kiss his kids good night?
And so goes by every day, it seems just like the last.
A year has past and now it’s time for him to get some rest.
7 days later he finds himself standing on a well known floor,
ringing a bell right next to his last name on the door.
It opens and there in front his families smiling bright,
then they rush into each others arms holding on so tight.
Down range he learned to appreciate the simple things in life.
A smile, a hug, a kiss, his kids, but most of all his wife.
The woman that fought right next to him even they where far apart.
The one that never left his mind, was always in his heart.
She was the one who daily fought a war at the home front,
’cause while he fought the tali ban she had to hold down the fort!
Now let us leave this family to rejoice their father’s home,
but say a prayer for all those soldiers that never made it home.
Never forget they laid down their life to protect us all,
they never did meet me or you, but protecting us all they did fall.

It’s funny how hello is always accompanied with goodbye
It’s funny how good memories can start to make you cry
It’s funny how forever never seems to really last
It’s funny how much you’d loose if you forgot about your past
It’s funny how friends can just leave you when you’re down
It’s funny how when you need someone they’re never around
It’s funny how people can change and think they’re so much better
It’s funny how many lies can be packed in one ”love letter”
It’s funny how people can forgive even though they can’t forget
It’s funny how one night can contain so much regret
It’s funny how ironic life turns out to be,
But the funniest part,
Is that none of it is funny…

If Everything Was Perfect
There Would Be Sunshine All The Time
If Everything Was Perfect;
There Would Be No Reason To Cry
If Everything Was Perfect;
Life Wouldn’t Be Such A Mystery
If LIFE Was Perfect
There Would Be No Tragedies.
If LOVE Was Simple;
People Would Last A Lifetime
If HAPPINESS Was perfect;
There Would Be No Reason Ta Frown.
If Every MOMENT Was Cherished;
There Would Be Many Things To Look Back On.
If Only People Would Understand
Not Everything Is Gonna Be Perfect.

You can wait for the fruit to fall,
or you can climb the tree to get the fruit or cut the tree so the whole tree comes down and then you get the fruit.
Decision taken will lead to the consequences to face.
Waiting is risk free but risky as well,
to the fact that someone else may get it instead.
Killing the tree means satisfaction now but what about the future?
Climbing the tree…Chances of getting hurt are high if you fall.
But without pain there is no gain.
You have to give out something to receive something in return.
Just make sure before you make any decision,
you check out all the options available.
For whatever decision you make can either be charity or treachery.

Love is something you can never forget
sometime love hurts you
sometimes love makes fun of you
sometimes test you
sometimes love makes you happy
sometimes it makes you forget your problem
sometimes it makes you adorable
sometimes it makes you feell above all
but when it break it makes you cry
sometime it makes you break down
sometimes it make you hurt yorself
But everything includes love
they are all effects of love!!

When you were gone
I just shattered …….
Helpless I stood
And it didn’t mattered
My life was a blank
Where I had nothing to write
People fooled me around
And I couldn’t even fight.
I just wanted to……
Hold your hand
And run away to places,
Where only we can stand.
But Life never ….. understood us
And made us go very far .
Where we had our seprate worlds,
But our hearts are still in that jar.
