All my love and more

Hi sweetheart, how are you?
I thought I’d drop you a line
Just to say I’m thinking of you
I hope that you are fine

I know I shouldn’t think about
The job you’re trained to do
But when I see it on the news
It just makes me think of you

Don’t worry about us back home
We’re fine now, do you hear?
Just focus on the job at hand
There is no need to fear

Watch out for your ‘brothers’
Make sure you keep your head down low
Keep your eyes and ears open
Wherever you must go

If the enemy is closing in
And things start getting rough
Then you must do what you’re trained to do
Even though it will be tough

Should your conscience start to grate
Deep down you know what’s true
You may have to kill, that will be hard
But it’s either them … or you

Remember, the weeks are passing one by one
Each one brings you closer to home
Until then, as promised, I’ll keep in touch
By letter, or by phone

I hope you’ve made a list of things
To do when this tour is done
So when you come home, we can start from the top
Completing them one by one

I know we miss each other terribly
It’s only natural that we do
So I am sending you a great big hug
With lots of kisses too

See you soon my sweetheart
I’m so very proud of you
Stay low, move fast, stay safe and well
Remember, I love you

All my love and more… Mum xxx
