My brother the Soldier

How sweet it is

Your safe return

Answered my prayers

Life's lesson learned

An unselfish act

After 9-11 you joined

Although I thought you were crazy

Cause you knew you'd be going

Once you left for Iraq

I can't even explain

The news became my enemy

Every day I felt your pain

For defending our country

So proud of you I must say

My brother the soldier

Is home safely today!

I love you Derek!
