When I Met a Soldier

When I met a soldier
It was the best time of my life
I had never dreamed that one day,
I’d be sitting as his wife

At first dating a soldier was such a lot of fun
I hadn’t really thought of the concept of him carrying a gun

When he first went away to Iraq
I was worried as anyone could be
I just counted down the days that
He’d be back home cuddling me

Afghanistan as well,
was a completely different league
I worried every second of the day,
it was that bad it could cause fatigue

But once he stepped off that plane and was back in my country land
I cooked him the best meal of his life and we went on holiday as planned
