You came to me

We had One night, one last kiss, then the plane took you away
you said it was your duty to fight for the USA
Sitting in this rocking chair singing lullaby’s
My mind wanders, I think of you, and begin to cry

I hope you got my letter, our baby’s due in June
I'm happy you'll be home by then, our baby will need you too
You’re my love, my life, my everything, I feel so all alone
I pray they keep their promise, and let you come home

The special day is coming soon, but I haven’t heard from you
I know you’ll be there, as promised, in the delivery room
Well this is it, still no word, our baby’s on its way                                          
I know your going to surprise me
I just hope you’re not too late,

The doctor said any minute now
But there’s a complication or two
Suddenly I feel so sleepy, I see a shadow
Honey is that you?

I feel your hand in my hand, I hear your gentle voice
All is well now, I knew you’d be here, to greet our little boy.
I feel you softly kiss me, tell me our love will never die
The doctor said it is over, as your son begins to cry

They said you tried to get here, they said you were on your way
No one expected the tragedy that took you from me that day
The last thing you told them, was to get the word to me
You'd be here to greet our new son, just as you promised to be

You came home to the one’s who love you
You came home though the journey was far
You came to me just the moment I needed you
In life and death we’re joined in our hearts.

A Word from the Writer
Sometime's it is not entirely clear if a happening is a tragedy, or a blessing in disguise. Love and Faith conquers many things, and can travel the universe in the supernatural just to sooth the heart of the one you love.
