There was a boy who had a dream
He flew a plane and then became a fine marine.
Uncertainty would lie ahead
How could Mom forget the time that he had said.
"I need to go back."

Conviction was the duty call
To fight for freedom and to give his best for all
Concerned about his brothers there
He'd join the company and they would not despair

He flew the ocean to the sand
Guided by a loving hand
Echoes of Mom would whisper to his soul and say

Son you have a warriors heart
God has been there from the start
He has a plan for you so keep believin'
We pray for guidance every day
The Lord will somehow make a way
We'll be together and we'll walk with you again.

You were on routine patrol
A bullet tried to steal your soul
Determination was your claim
Asking for your friends
Recalling them by name.

We're so glad that you survived
To know that you are still alive
So live your dreams and move forward with me

You won't walk this road alone
We'll be with you every step of the way
It's great to see how you have grown
Instead of looking back you can live for today
