"Come Home Soon" as written by and John/osborn Shanks....
I put away the groceries
And I take my daily bread
I dream of your arms around me
As I tuck the kids in bed

I don't know what you're doing
And I don't know where you are
But I look up at that great big sky
And I hope you're wishing on that same bright star

I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard living here ON MY OWN
So please come home soon
Come home soon

I know that we're together
Even though we're far apart
And I'll wear our lucky penny
Round my neck pressed to my heart

I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard living here ON MY OWN
So please come home soon
Come home soon

I still imagine your touch
It's beautiful missing something that much
But sometimes love needs a fighting chance
So I'll wait my turn until it's our turn to dance

I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
Without you this house is not a home
So please come home (soon)

I walk alone
I try alone
I'll wait for you
Don't want to die alone

So please come home soon
Come home soon
Please come home soon

    General Commentwith my boyfriend in the marines it's hard to listen to this song without crying, and wondering when he'll be back with me. it's a beautiful song about the heartache the people at home feel for their guys and girls in the armed forces. i'm so proud of him, but missing and worrying about him is with me every moment of everyday, and it's not easy. this song is for all the beloved of the armed forces...
