Requiem for a Soldier

I fought my battles
I did my time, I did it well
Bitter memories of the hell I lived.
Broken dreams and broken men
Are all behind me now
Many miles I walked alone
To stand on one last hill.
Now I see the desert, my journey’s end.
Add one bloody green jacket,
All I have.
Don’t ask my future or my past
Just see my jacket
It’s all I have.
