Soldiers Prayers              FEF  c.2008

 

When the face of my watch stopped keeping time

When the face of death joined in the fight

When the faces of comrades writhed in pain

Prayers were all that kept me alive

 

When our camp was shelled time and again

We felt obliged to return heavy fire

When our lives were in constant danger

Prayers were all that kept us alive

  

 

        Prayers to bear the unbearable pain

        Prayers to see morning’s light

        Prayers to end this relentless war

        Prayers to spare our young lives

 

When I felt the earth quake below my tank

When I felt the dark edge, I just might die

When I felt the heat pierce my body armor

Prayers were all that kept me alive

 

When we chased enemy round hidden corners

When we reached our platoon’s toll of five

When we grieved with families of fallen brothers

Prayers were all that kept us alive
