The Man In The Picture
I heard a noise late one nightAnd quickly went to my baby's sideMama, He said, When will Daddy be home?I held back a sob as I gave him a hugWhile looking for an answer to help him understandI reached for the picture frame next to his bed
You know Daddy's a soldier, who had to go awayTo help other soldiers, in a land far awayThey fight for their freedom and to help keep ours, too
He says My Daddy's a HeroAnd I kiss his cheek
To the world he's a hero, but to us, so much moreHe's a husband, a father, a brother, a sonHe's all of those things, rolled up in oneHe's the man in the picture we want to come home
They call him a heroBut first he's my manOh how can I make our son understandThe world that has caused himTo be taken awayAnd left us alone, to ponder our fate
They call him a heroBut he's much more to meOh how can I make itWithout him near mePlanning a futureNot sure where it goes Tossing and turning and sleeping alone
I got a call just the other dayHis Mom was crying, she'd seen the news that dayI try to calm her, but what can I do?She misses her son, and I miss you, too.
His brother comes over, he tries to help outThere's silence between usWe share the same doubtsHe fumbles through the projectsThen limps through the doorKnowing that fate doesn't keep score
There's a knock at the doorI hear our son shoutIt's Daddy! He's Home!And I start to cry.
