TO MY SON, SPC DAVID A. CAMPBELL, JR. 12/4/1979 TO 8/26/ 2009 By: Becky Campbell, A Proud 82nd ABN Mom Always 4/23/2003
So brave you are, so strong and so proud My Freedom fighter where are you now Amongst the land so far away Your shoulders pulled back as you fight your way Into the sand, no light to see I pray that you will always be Close to the one that protects us from fear As I count on him to bring you near And of the ones that protest those rights To live our lives, you fight with all might Just so they can wake up each day In our land that you’ve made this way Their tears don’t flow, their hearts torn in half But, because of my son they still can laugh Who has given them rights to all end? You and your comrades who’ll fight at each bend The things that you’ll see the fear you’ll bear While all that love you cry many a tear Who can you count on when you come home? I will not leave you, you are never alone As I cry for you each night I wish you blessed paths so bright If only others could see what it means To have a son like you are to me Not knowing just where or how safe you are now The tears they won’t stop I just don’t know how To keep you close with me ever in my thoughts I am so fearful that I’ll lose you for naught.
