My fate lies

By 9th April 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

The morning dew is on the ground
The wings are getting fed with rounds,
Gallons of fuel fill my plane
It’s the waiting that drives me insane,
I’ve cheated death I don’t doubt
The day will come of my last shout,
This war will end of that I know
Will I be here? I do not know,
Those I protect I do not love those I kill I do not hate,
But in the sky lies my fate,
My fighter is now ready to fly
It won’t be long till were in the sky
Many lives have been lost before
I ask myself how many more to go
The telephone has rang, the bell starts to ring
Not long now till my guns sing
I’ve been hit, I can’t take much more
I think I’m next at heaven’s door…
