Army Mom’s Safe Haven

MY DADDY IS A POW

I can't remember Daddy 'cause he's been away too long, and so
My Mommy tells me things we did together long ago.
And sometimes as she tells me, I think that I can hear
His voice, so soft and gentle, and I almost think he's near.

I know I don't remember him, except that he was wise
I know that Mommy misses him, because at night she cries
I can't remember Daddy or how things used to be.
I know that I love him, and that he remembers me.
