DEAR JESUS,

ITS ANOTHER LONELY NIGHT
MY HUSBAND IS IN IRAQ
SO I LYE HERE IN OUR BED TRYING
TO FALL A SLEEP
I DONT WANT TO CRY ANYMORE
I WANT THE PAIN TO GO AWAY
MY HUSBAND IS MY LIFE
DEAR LORD WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT HIM

WHEN HE IS NOT HERE
THERE IS A HOLE IN MY HEART
THAT ONLY HE CAN FILL

PLEASE LORD GIVE ME THE STRENGTH
TO GO ON ABOUT MY DAY
PLEASE LORD GIVE ME THE STRENGTH
NOT TO SHOW OUR SONS MY PAIN

DEAR LORD JUST LET ME SLEEP
THROUGH ONE NIGHT
WITH OUT CRYING MYSELF TO SLEEP

DEAR LORD I KNOW YOU ARE
HERE WITH ME
SO PLEASE I ASK AGAIN
GIVE ME STRENGTH
AMAN

I AM SITTING HERE ALONE
MISSING YOU
MY HEART HURTS
WHEN YOU ARE NOT HERE
BUT I KNOW IT WILL BE WHOLE
AGAIN WHEN YOU GET BACK HOME

WE CHOSE THIS LIFE
SO WE WILL GET BY WE JUST
HAVE TO BE PATIENT
I WILL LOVE YOU NO MATTER
HOW FAR APART WE ARE
YOU ARE MY LIFE WITHOUT
YOU I COULD NOT GO ON

I HAVE PAIN I WILL NEVER SHARE WITH ANYONE
THEY JUST SIMPLY
WOULDNT UNDERSTAND
A LOVE LIKE OURS ONLY COMES
ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

DADDY
PLEASE COME BACK HOME
I DONT UNDERSTAND
WHERE YOU ARE AT AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING
MOMMY SAYS YOUR WORKING
SHE SAYS YOUR A HERO
BUT DADDY ITS BEEN LONG TIME
DO YOU HAVE TO WORK ALL DAYS LONG
PLEASE COME BACK TO ME
I NEED YOU TOO
DADDY I LOOK UP TO YOU
THERE IS NO ONE BETTER
WHEN I GROW UP
I WANT TO BE A HERO TO
MOMMY EVEN SAYS YOU ARE BETTER
THEN SUPERMAN
ARE YOU REALLY?
I MISS YOUR HUGS AND KISSES
AND YOUR GOOD NIGHTS
AND MORNINGS TOO
DADDY PLEASE HURRY UP
AND GET THOSE BAD GUYS AND
COME BACK
WE CAN GO TO THE PARK AND
FLY AWAY ON THE SWINGS
SOAR DOWN SLIDES
AND PLAY CATCH
I LOVE YOU TO THE PARK
DADDY

YOUR MOM TELLS STORIES WHEN
YOU WERE A CHILD

SUPERMAN WAS YOUR HERO
WEARING YOU RED CAPE
ALWAYS MADE YOU FEEL PROUD

BABY YOU ARE IN IRAQ
SO I ASK YOU PLEASE REMEMBER
YOU MAY BE SUPERMAN BUT YOU ARE
NOT MADE OF STEEL

NOW YOU ARE GROWN
AND WE HAVE TWO LITTLE SUPERMEN OF
OUR OWN
SO PLEASE COME BACK HOME

PLEASE PRAY TO GOD
BEFORE EVERY STEP
HE WILL GUIDE YOU

BABY PLEASE REMEMBER
EVEN SUPERMAN NEEDS GOD
