Your gone and yet I miss you,

Your face is painted on my mind.

I can still see your eyes of pride and joy;

You always wanted to be a hero,

Now you are the hero – will you please come home?

Dear soldier boy Roger,

I miss you and love you lots.

I look at the stars and call your name,

But I get no reply.

Are you still alive?

I write and write letters and yet still no reply,

Just like me calling for you and you are in front of me,

But you don’t know that I am.

When will my soldier boy Roger come home

Only time can tell when you’ll be home.
