COME HOME DADDY

Please dear God let my daddy come home today 
Serving in the army and stationed so far away 
I miss him so much and mummy does do  
So please let my prayers come reality and true 

Daddy is a brave man and he serves in Iraq 
Always under a barrage of fire and constant attack 
For I am six years old and my sister is eight  
Come home today daddy we cannot wait 

I look at the clock on the kitchen wall 
Someone at the front door is starting to call  
My prayers have been answered its daddy dear
We are all so happy to have him here

Beautiful poem, Kieran. It's good to remind ourselves about those in the services working hard to keep us safe.
