DAD’S AT WAR
Where would I be without you, dad
My hero of night and day?
I’m so glad you love my mother
And take time for us to pray.
The last time we played baseball
You reached for me with your hand.
I looked at you, then made a wish
That I might be just half the man.
I love my father of earth,
And I love my Father of heaven.
It’s a lot for me to love, you know
For I’m only eleven.
Mom and I sure miss you
Since you left to defend our flag.
When others ask, where is your dad?
I can’t help but boast and brag.
