Soldiers Long Walk - Seth Pardieu

Closed eyes hide strife and defeat

A giggle cuts through like an almighty beat

Eyes spring open and wide eyes stare back

Daddy will you walk me down the aisle?

 

Slow, dragging steps in between breaths

A stumble, a fall, a defeated glance

Curses ring out, piercing like a lance

And through the cloud cuts a voice

Daddy will you walk me down the aisle?

 

No longer a man, a giant stands

With each step breaking new lands

And as steps get quicker, smiles grow wider

Daddy will you walk me down the aisle?

 

Standing tall before the tide

And causing joy with every stride

A sad yet happy smile on his face

A single voice rings out

Thank you daddy
