"A Soldier's Wife" as written by and Dean....
Breaking news from a desert town
Smoke and rubble on the ground
The names we do not know right now
And it cuts me like a knife

With a tearful goodbye kiss
I sent him off to this
But I've gotta stay strong for our kids
I'm a soldier's wife

I run the house
I sleep alone
I live for emails
And the phone calls home
I tell my children he will be all right
And I hope it's not a lie
I'm a soldier's wife

We do the things we used to do
Go to church, go to school
But you could drive a truck right through
The hole that's in our life

My little boy shoots me a grin
And says he wants to be like him
And I feel my heart start caving in
I'm a soldier's wife

Sometimes I'm angry
Sometimes confused
I live and die by
The evening news
But I tell my babies he will be all right
And I hope it's not a lie
I'm a soldier's wife

I pray for strength
I pray for peace
I pray that he comes home to me
And if you would please pray for me
I'm a soldier's wife

    General CommentThis song means so much to me. My boyfriend is in Iraq and I miss him. I know what its like going day by day watching just the news and hoping and praying nothing happened to him or any other soldier over there. I cant imagine my life without him, I just wish time would go by a little faster and he would be home. Oh well its not that much longer until he is home. Pray for your soldiers...they need out support!!!!
