A Soldier's Gift

I laid down my life
That you might live
I had no better
Gift to give

The world needs a hero
The others might say
But I wasn't trying
To be a hero today

I saw an angel
Beckoning to me
So I turned around
To better see

While I was turned
A bullet flew
Had I not turned
It would have been you

You've been a friend
Tried and true
And what better gift
To give to you

Live long and happy
My caring friend
I'll be your guardian angel
Until the very end
