my father went off to war
in the winter-time
in a cold storm
he said,
"don't worry if i'm not back again."

i never did

i got on my knees and prayed for days
to my father's heart
to an empty grave

"with good luck,
and good will from god,
we will all carry on."


carry on,
you're a soldier,
just like your father was.
