As I watched T.V. in silence, my heart filled with dismay,

A somber announcer stated "three soldiers were killed today."

I saw my little daughter playing with a toy,

A lump rose in my throat as I thought of my own boy.

I try to keep her from watching the horror of the world,

This cannot be good for such a tiny little girl.

As I looked at her I wondered, does she really understand?

The trouble Soldiers must face each day in a far and distant land?

She looked out the window with wisdom on her tiny face,

The words that she spoke made my own heart race.

Mommy you see the clouds and the rain fill up the skies?

That is Jesus crying when another Solider dies.
