To A Soldiers Mother ©

(he is at war)

John Bearcat-Redmond
Fife, Scotland
1992

She went to bed in the silent night
And she lay awake with fears
As she thought of the one who was far away
And her cheek was wet with tears
But the dawn came soon and the night had fled
And the world was fresh and fair
And the sun was up and the birds awake
And she breathed a silent prayer
Aye she breathed a prayer and a song gushed forth
And her heart began to bound
As the postie came and she was glad to learn her laddie was safe and sound
